Harmon & Sue Burns Scholars

Each year, the Giants Community Fund inducts 10 new Junior Giants into the Harmon & Sue Burns Scholarship Program. All Junior Giants entering eighth grade are invited to apply for a $5,000 scholarship. The Harmon & Sue Burns Scholars are honored at a home-plate ceremony at AT&T Park on Education Day.

Special thanks to the Burns Family Foundation who generously underwrites the cost of the Harmon and Sue Burns Scholarship Program each year and to Franklin Templeton Investments for their donation to support the Road to College Workshop and Education Day.
