Massachusetts Future Leaders Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 6
Award Deadline: Oct 10, 2024

The Future Leaders Scholarship aims to identify young men and women who will be tomorrow’s leaders. Bay State Games is proud to award these scholarships of a minimum of $1,000 to six deserving Bay State Games student-athletes. Over the past 30 years nearly $400,000 has been distributed to students who wish to continue their education.

Past recipients of the Future Leaders Scholarship have gone on to institutions located in New England as well as across the nation including Harvard University, Brown University, UMass Amherst, Vanderbilt University, and UConn. For a list of Future Leaders Scholarship recipients, click here.

The Massachusetts Amateur Sports Foundation awards these scholarships because it believes the future leaders of tomorrow are developed during their high school years with a solid foundation built on academics, athletics, community service, and extracurricular activities. Achieving success in academics, athletics, and community service teaches responsibility to self and to others, fosters a sense of self-worth, and develops an appreciation for the importance of setting goals and working to achieve them. If learned well, these lessons help make effective leaders in business, education, and the community. These values help to craft the leaders of tomorrow, and the Bay State Games hopes to help these leaders with the Futures Leaders Scholarship program.
