The Pokémon Company International awards scholarships to the top finishers at the Pokémon U.S. National Championships and the Pokémon World Championships. The scholarship may be applied to the tuition, books, fees, supplies, and equipment required for courses of instruction at a qualified educational institution attended by the winner or the winner's permitted transferee. Pokémon will determine the amount of any scholarships on an event-by-event basis.
