Sox Foundation offers scholarship

Posted
BOSTON — For the eighth consecutive year, the Boston Red Sox Foundation is seeking submissions for the New England Red Sox Service Scholarship from inspiring senior students who are dedicated to having a positive effect in their communities.

The scholarship honors academically-inclined high school seniors who have demonstrated a commitment to community service. Those selected will receive a $1,000 college scholarship and recognition during a special ceremony at Fenway Park.

"We are continually inspired by high school students' charitable endeavors and seek to recognize and reward their ongoing dedication to promoting social good," said Linda Henry, Red Sox Foundation board member. "We are very pleased with the growth of the service scholarship program, and we are eager to hear about this year's seniors, who are going above and beyond in their communities."

The Red Sox Service Scholarship, presented by Jenzabar and sponsored by Ford Motor Company Fund, was first introduced in New Hampshire in 2010 and has since expanded to honor students in Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maine and Vermont, as well.

This year, the scholarship program will be available to students in more than 200 schools throughout New England.

Submissions are due Feb. 16. For more details and to apply, visit redsoxfoundation.org/service-scholarships.
