The Bradenton Runners Club College Scholarship and Running Camp Aid Programs are two ways that we invest in and support our local community. These programs recognize, reward, and encourage our local student runners who pursue not only athletic, but academic goals.
Programs are funded through club operations, particularly proceeds from BRC’s two annual sponsored races: the De Soto Grand Parade 5K and the Manatee River Run 5 Miler. The BRC Board of Directors provides college tuition support and aid for summer running camps as a way to support our Manatee County student athletes. The college scholarships are open to Manatee County public high school seniors in a cross country or distance track program who plan on pursuing further education at a college or university. Applications for summer running camp aid are open to any Manatee County public high school or rising public high school student. Applications are available online and are distributed to Manatee County coaches and athletic directors annually. Eligible students must complete the application, adhere to contained criteria, and submit their material by the stated deadline. The BRC Scholarship Committee reviews each application and makes recommendations for relevant action to the BRC Board. Final selections and determinations are made by the Board and applicants are notified. Previous college scholarship recipients may apply for a renewal with current college information.
