Honorees and students at Yankees Stadium.

Eight-time Major League All Star, Carlos Beltrán and Hostos Community College proudly announce the creation of the Carlos Beltrán Scholarship.

On September 6th, 2014, six Hostos Community College students were recognized at Yankee Stadium during a pre-game ceremony with Carlos and Jessica Beltrán and Hostos Interim President Dr. David Gómez.  These scholarships were awarded to three, full-time students with a 3.2 GPA or higher and three, full-time students with a 2.4 GPA or higher who also demonstrated financial need.
Beltran was the 2013 recipient of the Roberto Clemente Award, presented by MLB to the player who best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team.  By establishing the Carlos Beltrán Scholarship, the proud Puerto Rican native, playing in his first season with the New York Yankees, is offering financial assistance to eligible Hostos students through the $5,000 awards.

Throughout his career, Carlos Beltrán has been involved in several charities looking to help others.   In creating the Carlos Beltrán Foundation, Beltrán supports many young student-athletes and established a high school near his hometown in Manatí, Puerto Rico, focused on developing their talents and instilling many of the same values that have been integral to his own success.
