Thursday, March 7, 2019

Robert Disburg Memorial Scholarship 

Post 8 Baseball in cooperation with the South Dakota Community Foundation is pleased to announce this scholarship opportunity for Pierre Post 8 Baseball Alumni. 

The following information is a partial transcript from Kelly Nelson, Program Accountant for the South Dakota Community Foundation. "One of the most rewarding aspect of my job with the South Dakota Community Foundation is the opportunity to work with generous individuals and families who want to impact the lives of South Dakotans. The Robert Disburg Memorial Scholarship Fund has been established to provide scholarships for players from the American Legion Post 8 baseball team, Pierre, SD. This scholarship is a permanently endowed fund within our organization. The scholarship is available annually for players beginning in the 2019 school year and the total amount available for distribution is $450."

This scholarship would typically be awarded to an outgoing high school senior, but because we have no seniors in our program this year, we have opened the application to anyone having participated in the Post 8 baseball program that is currently continuing their education.

The deadline for the application is April 15th, 2019.

Application can be found by clicking on this link.

If you have any questions regarding the application or eligibility requirements please contact Bob Gray at 224-5959.
