Miami Marlins Scholars are need-based academic scholarships that are awarded annually in two key categories:
- Legacy Scholars: Our legacy scholarships have a connection to baseball. We award two annual RBI scholarship to participants in our RBI baseball and/or softball program to support student athletes. We have also supported the Jackie Robinson Foundation scholarship since 2010.
- First Generation Scholars: Scholarships are awarded to students who are the first in their family to attend college.
In 2020, the Miami Marlins Foundation established a $420,000 endowment at the Jackie Robinson Foundation, which will yield an annual $20,000 scholarship to a deserving South Florida student.
Legacy scholars are students who have a commitment to making a significant impact in their community and live by Jackie Robinson's nine values.
In 2019, the Miami Marlins Foundation established an endowment at Florida International University (FIU) to award a first generation scholarship to a student attending FIU.
