The Solana Beach Little League (SBLL) will be offering its second annual $2,000 scholarship this year. In 2018, the SBLL Board of Directors voted to create the scholarship for former members of the league to support their college tuition. “We all felt like the next level of giving back to these great kids was to help out with something that would be meaningful after they ‘graduated’ from our Little League,” said SBLL President Patrick Johnson. Last year’s recipients were Arjun Nichani and Jacob Stevenson.

The 2019 scholarship application is open to high school seniors who have spent at least two years as part of SBLL. They must submit an essay describing their Little League experience and how it impacted their life. Submissions will be accepted from April 1 through June 1, and the winner will be announced by July 1.
