SPX RUGBY SCHOLARSHIP AWARD

The Matt Cusimano Scholarship is an internal scholarship program for SPX Rugby players. SPX Rugby has awarded $20,500.00 in awards to eleven students in the past seven years to help with their college expenses. The award is based on a combination of three criteria; academic achievement, a minimum of two years participation on the team, and financial need. SPX Rugby takes pride in the academic achievement of our team members as well their athletic accomplishments.

The SPX Rugby program has also raised over $ 8,228.00 for the St. Pius X High School Student Financial Aid Fund to help all SPX students in need. Team members also help out with the Salvation Army's annual "Angel Tree" program distributing Christmas gifts to families in the Houston area.
