Carrol Forbes Foundation Scholarship Program Announced by International Softball Congress


The International Softball Congress has created a college scholarship program for young men who have been involved in ISC Youth Development tournaments and events.


The announcement, made by ISC Executive Director Ken Hackmeister and Carrol Forbes Foundation Scholarship Chair, Charlie Smith, reflects the commitment of the ISC to enable the Forbes Foundation income to go to work assisting young men who are committed to the sport, to the ISC, and to furthering their education.


Both Hackmeister and Smith expressed their appreciation to John Thompson of Kitchener for his great assistance in developing the scholarship plan.  Thompson heads up a non-profit (“Sports and Scholarships”) which is the model for the new ISC plan.


The annual earnings of the Carrol Forbes Foundation will be used to fund the scholarships.


Eligibility is limited to young men who have participated in an ISC Youth Development sanctioned tournament or event, have completed their secondary/high school education, and who are continuing their academic career at a recognized post-secondary institution.


Recipients will be chosen based on applicants’ responses to their academic plans and career ambitions, their commitment to fastball and letters from school and fastball references.


The application form may be found by going to the ISC website - - - - and following the prompts to Rules and Forms.


The deadline for applications for the current school year is NOVEMBER 15, 2006.  They will be reviewed by the Carrol Forbes Foundation Scholarship Selection Committee before the end of the year.  The recipient will be informed, and the scholarship payment will be provided, early in 2007. 


Applications should be submitted via e-mail to Charlie Smith, CFF Scholarship Chair - - - - 10317 Sugarberry Place, El Paso, TX. 79925.  Phone 915-598-7528.
