Since 2006, Lisa M. Nousek has practiced law at Boies, Schiller & Flexner, LLP, and is now a partner in the Armonk, New York, firm. Outside of her professional activities, Lisa M. Nousek enjoys playing polo and supports related organizations like the nonprofit Polo Training Foundation.
The Polo Training Foundation oversees a variety of programs and activities to advance the sport of polo. In addition to youth and adult polo clinics, polo umpire- and instructor-training activities, and an international exchange program, the Foundation offers an academic scholarship program to provide financial assistance to college students who play polo. Launched in 2011, the scholarship program is open to high school seniors or current college students who have a 3.0 grade point average and demonstrate financial need.
Applicants must also be currently enrolled or planning to enroll as a full-time student at a college or university in the U.S. that offers an established polo program. Those who receive a scholarship from the Polo Training Foundation must remain active in their school’s polo program and reapply every year with supporting documentation to maintain their scholarship eligibility.
Currently, the Foundation’s scholarship program is supported through private donations, and the amount and number of scholarships may vary from year to year, based on the availability of funds. For more information, visit http://www.polotraining.org.
