This is the scholarship program’s fourth year in Maine. It was first launched in New Hampshire in 2010 and now runs in all five New England states outside of Massachusetts. The $1,000 Red Sox Service Scholarships are awarded to students based on academic performance, financial aid eligibility, and demonstrated community service.

The Ford-Red Sox partnership also supported Ford’s Driving Skills For Life New England tour by donating Red Sox raffle tickets and displaying the World Series trophies for members of the community who attended the free event and made a donation of peanut butter to their local Feeding America food bank.
