UNFORTUNATELY - because of the Coronavirus health crisis and current school closings, plus uncertainly as to when schools will re-open, Scholarships for the spring of 2020 have been postponed until spring 2021. Please follow our web site for future announcements. 

NEW :  In addition to our normal high school scholarship program, BSI in co-operation with the World Affairs Council of America, Pittsburgh branch, college student projects will take place in the spring semester of 2021, whereby students can be considered for honorarium considerations. For more information, follow announcements here and through your respective college.


A SUCCESS. Our project in co-operation with the World Affairs Council of Pgh was a success. We hosted a Student Leadership Forum at Robert Morris Univ. Nearly 150 high school seniors and faculty members from 14 area school districts took part. We arranged for 3 great presenters- US Congressman Conor Lamb; Jessica Friedrichs (Carlow University) and a former French Consul Jean-Pierre Collet and they covered the importance of US alliances, diplomacy and volunteerism -at home and abroad. Leo Trich was very impressed by the students and how interested they were in world engagement. That was our goal. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ATTENDED and to all who helped make it possible. Five $1000 scholarships, $1000 each, will be awarded. Selections will be made from among those who attended.  
Those selected : Madeline Ganoe (Rotary Club of Pgh Award); Atharv Bhave (Washington Co. Chamber of Commerce Award); Michael Koroly (North Franklin Twp. Business and Recreation Authority Award); Olivia Estright (BSI Larry Kushner Award) and Rhea Karim (BSI Leaders Award) 

The selection committee followed this format - selection based (1) on school/community leadership involvement, (2) Volunteerism, (3) financial need and (4) scholastic achievements (grades     


Ballpark Scholarship Inc, (BSI) was founded in 2001 and is a non-profit volunteer organization. We are devoted to supporting the further education of young athletes from Western Pennsylvania and to promote their leadership in the community. Although the original mission included the building of profession sports venue (Home of the Washington Wild Things), as a way to promote economic development and enhance the quality of life through sports entertainment, that mission also includes providing college scholarships. In doing so, we assist area high school seniors further their education. In addition, BSI wants to reward and promote area athletes who show leadership traits and a desire to help their schools and community, by volunteering their time to help others.
