  2. Contribute 10 hours of volunteerism (packet pickup, race volunteer, youth program, board member) to FMTC in the year that you apply. All hours to be signed off by an FMTC board member.


All scholarships are awarded on an annual basis.


Candidates are judged on the following factors:

  1. Academics (must submit current high school transcript)

  2. Your running involvement/participation

  3. Two letters of recommendation.


Interested individuals should prepare a letter discussing the above factors and anything else that helps show their best in any manner they choose.
