Applications are available at www.redsoxfoundation.org/leecountyscholarship/
The application deadline is January 7, 2022. All applications must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scholarships for academically talented students who have demonstrated a commitment to community service and are pursuing a two- or four-year degree at any college or university.
Scholarship money is raised annually from the annual Red Sox Swings proceeds for the Sox Golf Championship. To date, Swings for the Sox has raised more than $497,000 for local charities and specifically $437,175 for the scholarship program.
“The Red Sox Foundation continues to be committed to providing funds for these scholarships,” said Brennan Whiteley, Florida Senior Director of Commercial Operations for the Boston Red Sox. “The 10th Annual Swings Golf Sox has once again been a huge success in our efforts to raise more money for these scholarships.”
The Red Sox Foundation is the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and the official charitable team of the Boston Red Sox Association. The foundation’s primary focus locally is to serve the health, education, entertainment, and social services needs of children and families throughout Southwest Florida. The Red Sox is one of the most successful organizations in all of Major League Baseball.
