Westover~Lehrer~Rei Baseball Scholarship Foundation



  1. 1


 The Portland Baseball Umpires Association provides one winning applicant a four-year scholarship award of $6,000 total paid annually to a graduating high school senior baseball player.


To be eligible to receive the award the player must be enrolled in a College or University in the United States and on the roster of a recognized intercollegiate baseball team.


 The scholarship award is payable in four equal installments of $1,500 per academic year.  The first installment is paid in the fall of the freshman year.  Each subsequent payment will be paid at the spring term, provided the player is listed on the roster of a collegiate baseball team and is academically eligible to compete.


 Award recipient will be eligible to receive annual installments, up to the award maximum, for up to five academic years of NCAA eligibility from the date of the award as long as other conditions of the award are met.


To continue annual receipt of the award recipient must remain in school the entire year (summer sessions excluded).


 Should the recipient change schools the scholarship coordinator must be notified with an address in order to continue annual award payments.





  • Applicant must graduate from an accredited Oregon high school serviced by the PBUA, and must be in the process of applying for admission to a college or university.


  • Applicant must show outstanding sportsman like behavior on and off the field of play.


  • Applicant must show interest and promise in playing college or university baseball.


  • Applicant must provide a complete application to the scholarship committee postmarked on or before the application deadline of Wednesday March 8, 2023. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered.


 During the course of the spring high school baseball season each applicant will be evaluated by the membership of the PBUA during games played and will be evaluated equally on leadership, sportsmanship and players performance.

 The scholarship committee as a major factor in the selection process will review these evaluations. We recommend that each applicant introduce himself to the umpires at each game at the coaches meeting and identify himself as a candidate for the scholarship.
