South Bend Cubs offering scholarships to local softball, baseball players
The South Bend Cubs will be accepting applications for one of several $5,000 scholarships for college-bound softball and baseball players in the 11 counties surrounding Four Winds Field on Monday, May 13.
“These $5,000 scholarships are a significant way to emphasize our support of future leaders and the game we all love,” said Andrew T. Berlin, Chairman and Owner of the South Bend Cubs. “They’re not just for current athletes who will go on to play in college. They’re for any high school senior athlete who intends to continue his or her education full time after high school.”
In 2018, the South Bend Cubs awarded three scholarships of $5,000 each to high school seniors from Plymouth High School (softball), St. Joseph High School in South Bend (baseball) and Niles High School (baseball).
Applications for the 2019 South Bend Cubs Scholarships will be accepted between May 13 to June 7.
Up to five $5,000 scholarships will be granted.
“This scholarship offers a tremendous opportunity for our college-bound athletes,” said Joe Hart, President of the South Bend Cubs. “We understand the drive it takes to be an athlete and look forward to helping several of them pursue their post-secondary education.”
Applicants for the 2019 South Bend Cubs Scholarships must deliver their applications in person to the 1st Source Bank Performance Center at the corner of South Street and Lafayette Boulevard in downtown South Bend.
