The Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) through generous funding from The Anthony A. Yoseloff Foundation, Inc., will award up to four scholarships to college students who wish to attend the 2014 SABR Analytics Conference on March 13-15, 2014, in Phoenix, Arizona.

About the Scholarship

The objective of this scholarship fund is to encourage student engagement with baseball analytics, and to engender an active interest in baseball research and SABR. The Yoseloff scholarship is to assist young researchers who want to attend SABR’s Analytics Conference and to introduce them to fellow SABR members and professionals within the baseball community. Through this fund, SABR hopes to inspire future baseball research, expose students to high-quality research and build the research capability of interested students.

To apply, submit an essay of 750 words or less answering the following questions: “How does attending this conference help you in analytics and/or baseball research? Why would this conference be beneficial for you to attend?” Style guidelines are available on the application form.

  • You must be between 18 and 29 years of age at the time of the conference. Some form of age verification (photocopy of driver’s license, passport, etc.) must be attached to your application
  • Only one essay will be accepted per applicant
  • Any previous winner of a Yoseloff scholarship is not eligible for a future scholarship.
  • In addition, any participant in the Diamond Dollars Case Competition is not eligible for the Analytics scholarship.
