The John McLendon Scholarship Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c)3 charity organization, named after legendary Coach John McLendon, who helped integrate the game of basketball. The Foundation was founded by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) and serves as the minority/diversity intitiative of the Association.
Each year, the Foundation awards a minimum of five $10,000 postgraduate scholarships to senior-level minority students who intend to pursue an advanced degree in athletics administration.
To help raise funds for the Scholarship Program, the Cleveland Indians donated a 2009 Jackie Robinson game jersey to support the John McLendon Minority Scholarship Foundation.
Information on how to obtain the Indians' jersey can be found at:
Bids start at $250 and all proceeds will benefit the John McLendon Minority Scholarship Foundation.
