Bradenton Runners Club 2017 College Scholarship Application

The Bradenton Runners Club College Scholarship Program is a supportive way for our club to invest in the Manatee County community. Club college scholarships recognize, reward, and encourage local student runners to pursue athletic and academic goals. Proceeds from BRC’s annual club-sponsored races help to fund this college tuition support. College scholarships are open to Manatee County high school seniors on cross country or track teams who plan on pursuing higher education at a college or university.
