The Kraig Andre’ Diggs Scholarship Fund

Welcome to the Kraig Andre’ Diggs Scholarship Fund. This scholarship fund was established in 2018 to honor the life of Kraig Andre’ Diggs and to continue his legacy of compassion, kindness and living life to its fullest.

The Kraig Andre’ Diggs Scholarship is funded through the proceeds of our annual dodgeball tournaments, sponsorships and individual donations. The organization does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, gender, sexual orientation, handicap or national/ethnic origin.

Our goal is to bestow scholarships to exemplary individuals and to assist others in making their dreams of attending college or a university, a reality. Financial need is considered, however all students are encouraged to apply.   A one time award will be given to each chosen recipient.  The selection process is completed by Kraig’s family.
