The Ira Mitzner Collegiate Boxing Scholarship
June 15, 2023
- Scholarship Description
Ira Mitzner was born in Brooklyn NY, in 1947. His grandfather introduced him to the sport of boxing at a young age. Although boxing didn’t play a prominent role again in Ira’s life until he was 50, the tenacity, toughness, and courage he learned at a young age from his exposure to the sport was evident throughout his life. The Ira Mitzner Collegiate Boxing Scholarship is being established in his name to allow a student, who demonstrates the same love and dedication to the sport of boxing, to pursue an education and enable them to develop the character needed to be as successful as Ira was in both school and on the stage of life.
The Ira Mitzner Collegiate Boxing Scholarship is open to any currently enrolled undergraduate student attending a four-year college or university, who is also a competitive boxer for a United States Intercollegiate Boxing Association member club or any high school senior accepted to a four-year college or university, who will be a competitive boxer in the United States Intercollegiate Boxing Association Championships and start a member club. Applicants must have a 2.5 GPA. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
