There is no quota system of any kind. Every applicant competes with every other applicant on an equal basis. The Dixie Youth Baseball scholarship program is administered by an 11-member committee composed of national board members - one from each state - appointed by President Kent Bruxvoort.

Johnny Berthelot, National Board member from Gonzales, Louisiana serves as Chairman of the Scholarship Committee. Berthelot succeeded P.L. Corley who succeeded Tom Linton, who chaired the Scholarship Committee from the inception of the program until stepping down a few years ago.

FEBRUARY 1 is the deadline for submission of scholarship applications. Each member of the Committee receives a copy of each application. Each committee member studies all applications and vote by ballot for their top choices. Normally, a run-off ballot will be necessary to complete the list of  scholarship winners to be chosen in 2014. The process is completed by APRIL 15, in time for the recipients to be notified and plans made for the recognition to take place at the recipients "High School Awards Day" ceremonies or  during a Dixie Youth tournament.

Each $2,000 award is sent directly to the financial aid department at the college that the recipient plans to attend. The financial aid departments apply the $2,000 award toward the cost of tuition.  However, each scholarship winner receives a handsome plaque as a lasting memento of the honor.
