College Scholarship Plan (CSP)/ Continuing Education Program (CEP)
We recommend you review your first professional baseball contract. Your Club may have provided you with a College Scholarship Plan (CSP) or Continuing Education Program (CEP) funds to help you attend an institution that offers training for personal and professional development. A CSP provision would allow you to attend a university or college, provided your studies are in pursuit of an undergraduate degree. A CEP provision would, in addition to these options, help you attend a vocational training school and/or pursue a postgraduate degree.
CSP and CEP funding may be used in the United States or abroad when the foreign organization or institution is accredited by a body that is deemed to meet U.S. Department of Education standards. There is a two-year window to commence studies after you stop playing.
For additional information about your eligibility, please visit: www.mlb.com/scholarship. If you have general questions about the CSP or the CEP, please contact Rich Hunt at email@example.com; 212-931-7848.
