Scholarships

The Civil Rights Race Series would like to thank everyone who supported phase I of the 1 Million Miles for Justice campaign.  No matter if you were able to contribute 1 mile or 500 plus miles, we are truly appreciative.  Some of you voiced your sentiments of wanting to do more, but could not due to different circumstances.  The CRRS recognizes the hardships of so many due to Covid 19 and other issues that have affected so many financially.  


The CRRS, along with the assistance of a few of our corporate partners, has implemented a scholarship program to support a selected few that would like to participate in the Phase II event, but may not have the means to financially support the event at this time.  Potential recipients must complete a detailed application.  All applications will be reviewed by our team.  Recipients will be chosen based on their responses and who we feel are most deserving.
