Community Sports Notebook: Deadline approaching for Bay State Games’ Future Leaders Scholarship applications
Bay State Games Announces Future Leaders Scholarship
The Bay State Games is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 2020 Future Leaders Scholarship Program. This marks the 32nd year of this valuable scholarship program that recognizes the leaders of tomorrow who excel in academics, community service, and athletics. The scholarship program is available to any Massachusetts High School student in the class of 2021. Due to the cancellation of the 2020 Summer Games, participation in the Bay State Games is not required but is recommended. Six $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to the top applicants.
Candidates must submit their application information online by Oct. 15, 2020. The selection process will begin with a review of each student’s application, written recommendations, and transcripts. A number of students will then be selected for virtual interviews which will be conducted the week of Nov. 9. At the conclusion of interviews, six statewide scholarship winners will be announced.
Additional information on the scholarship and a link to an application form can be found at www.baystategames.org/future-leaders-scholarship.
