AAIB Mission Statement
The American Association for the Improvement of Boxing, Inc. is a 501(c)(4) organization founded in 1969 by Rocky Marciano and Steve Acunto. In association with the AAIB Boxers Assistance Corporation, a 501(c)(3) organization, it provides funding for scholarships to boxers who are high school graduates and who have been accepted by a bonafied college, provides funds to destitute boxers; and publishes and distributes instructional information on the science of boxing and boxing safety. Each entity is comprised solely of volunteers.
Over the last four years, the AAIB distributed over $116,000 for boxers to continue their higher education. The need for a scholarship for boxers is unique. A variety of private, governmental, and institutional sources in this country already provide aid based on academics, financial need, and athletics. Athletes who excel in many sports, such as basketball and football, often receive scholarships due to the college’s support of that particular sport. However, there are very few collegiate boxing programs in this country. Therefore, there is little financial assistance for the stand-out amateur boxer who wants to attend college. As a result, although the amateur boxer might excel in his or her craft, a scholarship is virtually unattainable and the boxer is denied financial assistance.
The AAIB looks to fill this void for the amateur boxer. The AAIB Boxers Assistance Corporation scholarship will be for amateur boxers meeting the following criteria:
1. The applicant must be a current or former amateur boxer in the United States who has been accepted by a bonafied college or university.
2. The students must sign a waiver authorizing the school to release records to be reviewed by the scholarship committee.
3. The individuals will be evaluated in the following areas:
a. Athletics: Awards, honors, or achievements in the are of athletics.
b. Academics: Awards, honors, or achievements in the area of academics.
c. Community Involvement: Services performed for charitable or other community organizations.
d. Financial Need: Necessity for financial assistance will also be examined.
