Do you know former Girls on the Run or Girls on Track participants who are now high school seniors? We're working hard to reach past participants, but if you know any GOTR Alumni that might benefit from this opportunity, please share the news!  Most participants would have been a part of the program while they were in 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade. Please help us spread the word! 

Since our first local season in 2005, we have empowered thousands of girls using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Now, many of the girls from our early years are young women, navigating adulthood with the tools and strategies learned through Girls on the Run.

Now in year two, we are pleased to continue empowering former GOTR participants through the Girls on the Run Alumni Scholarship Award. This award provides an opportunity to recognize, support, and celebrate young women who have previously participated in the Girls on the Run or Girls on Track program, and have demonstrated bringing the Girls on the Run core values to life. 

Girls on the Run is pleased to award a $2,500 scholarship to two past program participants, for use toward their post-secondary education. Two $2,500 scholarships are available.

Scholarships will be awarded based on a student's participation in school and community activities, two short essays, and a letter of recommendation.

Through these scholarships, we hope the Girls on the Run experience will continue to positively impact our past participants for many years to come.
