THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF BOXING (AAIB) PRESENTS:
The AAIB #BoxingChance
"Boxing gave me discipline; a sense of self. It made me more outspoken. It gave me more confidence." - Sugar Ray Leonard
There are over 28,000 registered amateur boxers in America. Every day, these young men and women step into boxing gyms while facing tremendous obstacles. In the ring, they have their first experiences with self-control, self-analysis, and ultimately, self-worth.
AAIB Scholarships provide the only financial assistance in the country to high school seniors who wish to attend one of the few elite colleges with boxing programs. AAIB Scholars are hard-working students and community members as well as disciplined athletes.
Give Discipline, Strategy, Confidence.
Help us find more of these determined young individuals. Give them the discipline, strategy, and confidence of the sweet science and noble art.
