Mens sana in corpore sano - a healthy mind in a healthy body.
Simultaneously excelling both academically and athletically is no easy task. Between the training and competition schedules required for athletics and all of the homework, studying, and other responsibilities of college, student-athletes have their hands full.
This scholarship aims to support students who are competing in triathlons, running, or cycling while pursuing their undergraduate or graduate degree, preferably in STEM.
Any student participating in competitions for cycling, running, or triathlon while attending undergraduate or graduate school may apply, but STEM students are preferred. Students must be committed to their college duties, such as extracurriculars, research, and maintaining their grades.
To apply, submit 1-3 images of you participating in a competition or standing on the pedestal. Then, write a short essay telling us what type of competition or race the image is from and what your experience during that competition was like.
Briefly tell us about your experience in the competition(s) in the images you shared.
The application deadline is Jan 2, 2022. Winners will be announced on Jan 31, 2022.
The scholarship award is $1,000 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jan 31, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
