Education is an important part of life. In baseball terms, it
gives you a healthy lead as you round the bases. But not everyone gets the same
opportunity for higher education. That’s why UMPS CARE Charities partnered with The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption (DTFA) and Slate XP to offer the UMPS CARE Charities All-Star Scholarship.
The UMPS CARE Charities All-Star Scholarship is for children adopted from foster care, in order to help provide a college education to students who otherwise might not be able to afford one. UMPS CARE Charities will award a total of $40,000 in scholarship funding for 2013.
All-Star Scholarships are open to children adopted from U.S. foster care at the age of 12 years or older to provide increased opportunities for advanced education. Scholarship funding will provide for $5,000 scholarships for a two-year institution –OR– $10,000 scholarships for a four-year institution.

A note from Josh P.
Dear Major League Baseball Umpires and the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption,
I am writing to thank you for your generous $10,000 annually scholarship award.
I was extremely relieved and appreciative to learn that your Umpires selected me as a recipient of this scholarship. This award will ease my financial stress and help make my dream of studying at the University of Colorado achievable.
I am grateful for your support in getting me one step closer to my goal of graduating college.
This Scholarship will help me continue to pave the road to success. I am proud to be who I am and now even prouder of who I can become. Thank you for seeing my potential and giving me the opportunity to utilize it.
