Higher Education Scholarship

The Lake Norman Little League Higher Education Scholarship was established in 2021 by the league's Board of Directors to reward former/current Lake Norman Little League baseball and/or softball players, who embody the ideals and values of Lake Norman Little League, with financial assistance for higher education or fees associated with the first year of trade school instruction. In order to be eligible to receive this scholarship, the applicant must be a senior in high school and meet the other eligibility criteria set forth below. There is no relationship between the award of this scholarship and athletic ability. While seasons of play in Lake Norman Little League is one criteria used to determine scholarship recipients, other factors, including but not limited to an applicant’s service to Lake Norman Little League (including, for example, as an umpire, helper or other efforts in support of the league), community involvement, volunteer hours and academic achievement will be considered when awarding these scholarships.

Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible for consideration, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  1. Be a graduating high school senior.
  2. Must have played in Lake Norman Little League for at least 1 season. For purposes hereof, a “season” includes participation in at least 60% of the applicant’s games in a particular division in a spring or fall season.
  3. Be accepted and plan to attend an accredited university, college or trade school.

Scholarship Award

The Lake Norman Little League Scholarship Committee consisting of certain present League Board members will select the scholarship recipients. To ensure fairness in reviewing applications, applicant names will be redacted before being submitted to the Scholarship Committee for review.

Scholarship Amount

A scholarship in the amount of $1,000 will be awarded on behalf of each recipient directly to each recipient’s college, university or trade school after proof of enrollment has been provided to or obtained by Lake Norman Little League.
