There is ample evidence to support the assertion that education is the gift that keeps on giving. Earning capacity is linked to the degree of educational attainment. And just as vital as earning capacity, a college education offers enormously valuable social benefits. All of these contribute to a better quality of life.
At present, Babe Ruth League offers three scholarship programs—the Babe Ruth League Alumni Scholarship, the Irby Luquette Endowed Scholarship, and the Jaime Horn Memorial Scholarship. For further information, please visit www.baberuthleague.org.
