The Bill White Scholarship Fund was established in 1980 following Bill's death from cancer. Bill was responsible for starting Colt Baseball (15 & 16 year-olds) locally in 1965. This fund awards scholarships to former Colt Leaguers who are entering a college or university. The criteria include academic excellence, exemplary citizenship, and financial need. Bobby Dawson was the first recipient in 1981, and since then (including 2017) 237 scholarships have been awarded totaling over $ 200,000.

The amounts range from $500 to $2,000.
