The scholarship is awarded annually by the Charlottesville Track Club to high school seniors. The applicant must live in one of ten counties: Albemarle, Greene, Orange, Louisa, Fluvanna, Buckingham, Nelson, Augusta, Rockingham, or Madison; or the cities within these counties. The applicant must express an interest in running by either being a member of their local high school cross country or track teams or participate in a Charlottesville Track Club event within the past year.
Charlottesville Track Club members, as well as participants of a Charlottesville Track Club event within the past year are eligible regardless of school attended (including private or home school that are located in the ten counties above). The scholarship is based on personal recommendations, academics, and community or extracurricular activities, in that order. It is not based on athletic achievement. If you are awarded this scholarship, the sum of $1,000.00 will be sent by the Charlottesville Track Club to the college (2 year or 4 year college) you will attend to be applied to your tuition bill.
