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 2018) 251 scholarships have been awarded totaling over $ 215,000. The amounts range from $500 to $2,000.
