Jose Luis Kortright Scholarship

Sunday, July 30, 2023

The Jose Luis Kortright Scholarship was established by Lydia, Ken, Monica, Frank, Jose, David, Larry, Dennis, and Erik in honor of their husband and father. The foundation honors his passion for family, service, and commitment to the community. The Scholarship is need-based and helps support the financial need of student-athletes who would like to participate in travel baseball or after-school programs.

Applicants are selected through a process led by the Kortright family. Once awarded, the Scholarship will support the chosen applicant’s choice of a travel baseball team's tuition and team fee. Student-athletes may apply annually as long as they uphold the standards of academic performance and community membership outlined by The Kortright Kares Foundation. Recipients are selected annually based on an application and essay submitted. Student athletes must meet the following criteria:

  • Consistent academic performance, “Always do your best”.
  • Proven team player who is engaged in school and athletics with a love of learning and a positive can-do attitude.
  • Demonstrated financial need.

Please download and complete the Scholarship Application and submit it via email. (See complete instructions on the actual application). Applicants need to request a reference letter from either a teacher, advisor, or coach describing their engagement in and out of the classroom. (Only one reference letter is required). Both the Scholarship Application and Reference Letter must be submitted for consideration. Please email all materials to:

The Eastend Baseball Academy and Top Tier Aviators want to thank the Kortright Kares Foundation for their dedication and support of enriching the lives and opportunities for all ball players in our community.
