RRCA Roads Scholar Application Period Opens
Arlington, VA - Since 1996, the Road Runners Club of America has awarded stipends through its Roads Scholar program to assist American post-collegiate road runners who show great promise to develop into national and world class road running athletes. The Roads Scholar program has distributed over $300,000 to emerging American distance runners since the programs inception. Grants in the amount of $5,000.00 per year have been awarded to four to six athletes annually since the program’s inception. The driving factor in the creation of this program was the goal of improving the state of long distance running in the United States.
The RRCA is now accepting applications for our 2010-2011 Roads Scholar class. The deadline for applying is March 31, and the application can be found on-line.
The program is directed towards runners who:
- Are US citizens;
- Have graduated from college;
- Plan to pursue elite distance running as a career;
- Expect to earn less than $30,000 from all sources during the calendar year.
The program is 100% supported by contributions from events, clubs, and individual donors. To make a contribution to the Roads Scholar program, send a check payable to the RRCA or contribute online today!
