Meet the 2009 Red Sox Scholars
Twenty-five Boston Public School students were inducted into the Red Sox Scholars Class of 2009 in an on-field ceremony with their BIDMC Medical Champions and Red Sox players at Fenway Park on June 7. The 25 Scholars, who will enter sixth grade in the fall, are all academically talented, financially challenged middle school students in the Boston Public Schools.

The program is the educational cornerstone of the Red Sox Foundation, the team charity of the Boston Red Sox, and is presented by BIDMC, the Official Hospital of the Boston Red Sox and Red Sox Nation. Each of the 25 Scholars will receive a $10,000 college scholarship, along with access to tutoring and mentoring from Red Sox Foundation staff members and other after school enrichment activities. On Sunday, a new sign celebrating the Scholars program and the relationship between the Red Sox and BIDMC was unveiled on the left field side wall of the Green Monster.
