Jackie Robinson Foundation Scholarship Program

Jackie Robinson Foundation Scholarship

Jackie Robinson made history as the first African American to play in Major League Baseball. Now, his foundation is making history with a scholarship program that addresses the financial needs of college students. The foundation offers scholarship awards, as well as extensive, hands-on mentoring and support services. Winners will receive a generous four-year scholarship to attend an undergraduate school of their choice. They can also enroll in a special leadership program that the foundation itself offers.
The four-year program guides JRF Scholars to successfully navigate their college environments, open career options, develop leadership skills and embrace a commitment to service. The program also encourages the values and character traits embodied in the heroic life of the Foundation’s namesake, inspiring Scholars to positively impact the lives of others and continue to make Black history.

The JRF scholarships are awarded to exceptional high school graduates planning to earn a baccalaureate degree from an accredited four-year college or university. Additional sponsorships are given to JRF Scholars to pursue opportunities to study and work abroad.

Scholars are also sponsored financially to attend JRF’s annual four-day “Mentoring and Leadership Conference” in New York City as well as other regional events throughout the year.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in FEBRUARY, and the scholarship amount is up to $30,000 (over four years).
