Massachusetts Future Leaders Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $2,000
Awards Available: 6

The Future Leaders Scholarship aims to identify young men and women who will be tomorrow's leaders. Each year the Bay State Games is proud to award these $2,000 scholarships to six deserving Bay State Games athletes. Over the past 25 years nearly $300,000 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, Stanford, Boston College, Notre Dame, Princeton, UMass Amherst, Yale, UCLA, Boston University, Holy Cross, Tufts, University of Virginia, Holy Cross and Providence College.

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 and other interests as well as community service. 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.
