The Joshua L. Anderson Memorial Foundation was created in 1992 to award scholarships to deserving student/athlete graduates from high schools in Northern Nevada.

Since inception 28 years ago, the Foundation has awarded three hundred and twenty-three (323) scholarships to students from thirty three different Northern Nevada high schools.  The Foundation expects to award 10-12 additional scholarships in 2021.

Each scholarship is a $3,500 award.  Recipients will receive their $3,500 scholarship at the start of their freshman year of college. Recipients will need to provide proof of enrollment before receiving scholarships.  (Click here to review all Scholarship Rules & Regulations.)

Good, hardworking, ambitious student/athletes having participated in a high school baseball or softball program are encouraged to apply.  Scholarships are based upon the applicant’s financial need, academic performance, extracurricular activities, participation in a high school baseball or softball program and a strong desire to earn a college education.

Completed applications must be submitted online or postmarked no later than April 9, 2021 and mailed to:
