Since the inception of the Fox River Trail Runners Scholarship Fund we have awarded over $140,000 in College Scholarships to local youth.  We award up to six scholarships per year for a total amount of $10,000  to eligible club members in good standing who are involved in running-related activities and will be entering their first year of undergraduate college studies, or returning for second year, at an accredited U.S. institution.

Each year the scholarship committee reviews applications and considers applicants based on a variety of criteria, including:

  • Academic achievements
  • Essay content
  • Extent of volunteer work with FRTR,
  • Coach’s recommendation
  • Participation in running-related or other extra-curricular activities

The Class of 2023 Scholarship Recipients Are:

Tess Walsh, Abby Reilly, Caroline Nosek, Matthew Kuryla, and Eli Wilson

Applications must be completed and submitted to during the enrollment period between October 15  to January 15.
