MEDIA ADVISORY: Mayor Landrieu, National Basketball Players Association to Award Second Round o Midnight Basketball Scholarships to Participants

December 15, 2017

NEW ORLEANS – On Saturday, Dec. 16, 2017, Mayor Landrieu and the National Basketball Players Association Foundation (NBPA Foundation) will present the second round of Midnight Basketball scholarships to five Midnight Basketball Season 16 participants at the final game of the season. The scholarships will help recipients improve their job readiness and increase their opportunities for education.


During the 2017 NBA All-Star Weekend, the NBPA Foundation made a scholarship commitment to Midnight Basketball of $50,000 per year for the next three years. The NBPA Foundation’s commitment will continue to provide select Midnight Basketball participants the opportunity for education and training programs in New Orleans.


Midnight Basketball is a part of Mayor Landrieu’s comprehensive Murder Reduction Strategy, NOLA FOR LIFE, and reaches young men who may be at risk of being impacted by violent crime in the city. Since its launch in January 2012, Midnight Basketball has offered over 13,000 participants access to jobs, job training, education and other resources.
