O'Grady Scholarship Foundation was formed in Spring 2000, we have donated over $212,000 to youth causes including 198 scholarships totaling $164,000 to Salem Little League and Boys & Girls Club alumni, and over $40,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Salem. Thank you to friends, family and local businesses for making this possible. Eligibility requirements to apply for a Stephen M. O'Grady Scholarship are:

Scholarships are awarded based on a combination of academic achievement, volunteer/community work, quality of application and personal essay.

The number and amount of our yearly scholarships are determined by prior year fundraising efforts.
