Top Gun Events is excited to provide scholarships to deserving fastpitch participants of The Top Gun Invitational. The Top Gun Scholarships were started to honor athletes that exhibit outstanding character, high school academics, and community involvement. Starting with the 1st Top Gun Invite (2013), we have awarded at least two scholarships each year. Total, we have awarded $20,000 in scholarships. In 2019, we expanded the number to 4 minimum, per year.
“I really enjoy and look forward to this part of the tournament. I do not know who is going to win the scholarships until the Top Gun Staff shows up and we surprise the athletes and their parents right there on the field.” – Robb Behymer
