Apply to Become a Cannonball Scholar!

The Cannonball Scholars program goal is to provide a socioeconomically diverse cohort of academically successful high school students demonstrating potential in leadership and athletics with preparation for graduation from our world’s finest higher education institutions. Cannonball Scholars receive financial assistance based on merit and financial need to combat the rising costs of essential academic, personal, college and athletic counseling. Candidates for the Cannonball Scholars need an academic record demonstrating the potential for success and a passion for becoming the scholar, athlete and leader they can be.


Registration has begun for The Cannonball Foundation’s 2015 Cannonball Scholars Open Winter Workouts!

The first workout will be on Saturday, January 3rd. Workouts will continue on the 1st and 3rd Saturday from January – March from 2:30 – 4:30 pm at The Farm located at 108 Clematis Avenue, Waltham, MA.

Each workout provides an opportunity to develop baseball skills and receive academic and personal supports from The Cannonball Foundation staff. Several sessions will include presentations from The Cannonball Foundation’s faculty comprised of college and professional coaches and academic leaders.
