RRCA Seeks Applications for the 2012 Roads Scholar® Grants
Since 1996, the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) has awarded grants 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 $390,000 in grants to emerging American distance runners since the programs inception. Grants in the amount of $5,000.00 are awarded to four to six athletes per year.
The RRCA is now accepting applications for our 2012-2013 Roads Scholar class. The deadline to apply is June 1, 2012. More information about the program, including the application and information about grantees, can be found at www.rrca.org/programs/roads-scholars/.
The program is directed towards runners who:
- Are US citizens;
- Have recently 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. Learn more about supporting this program financially.
