Training Team Scholarship

Established in 2017 thanks to a generous donor in our local community, J&A Racing and the J&A Racing Training Team are excited to invest in you, your running goals and most importantly your personal growth. The journey of arriving to the starting line of the Yeungling Shamrock Marathon Weekend can be more impactful than actually crossing the finish line. Race day will be your celebration.

Thanks to a generous donor in our local community, J&A Racing and the Training Team have ten (10) financial aid scholarships available. The scholarship provides free registration for the J&A Racing Fall Training Team and a Race Entry for the participant’s preferred race distance during the Yuengling Shamrock Marathon Weekend (Marathon, Half Marathon, 8K, Dolphin Challenge, or Whale Challenge).

Ten (10) Scholarship awards will be given to selected applicants based on the Scholarship Committees recommendation. Criteria Includes:

  • Financial need that can be demonstrated through income and debt levels*.
  • Life factors such as marital status, dependents, and employment that can impact financial need.
  • Personal Statement that outlines need, desire, and passion.

*J&A Racing reserves the right to request proof of income and debt levels to award scholarship.

Application Process:
Application must be submitted by November 21, 2017. All applicants will be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee.  The Scholarship Committee will select recipients based on need and potential impact on their life. All applicants will be notified of the results by November 28, 2017.

Requirements if Selected:
All scholarship recipients will be required to engage  in pretraining, during training and post race conversations so that impact and growth can be captured for the use of donor reporting. Participants may request to remain anonymous.
