RRCA Seeks Applications for the 2013-2014 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 $420,000 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 2013-2014 Roads Scholar class. The deadline to apply is July 31, 2013 following the RunPro Camp.  All interested Roads Scholar applicants are encouraged to apply to attend the RunPro Camp for 2013.  Learn more about the program and access the online application form.

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.
