After a very successful first year of our scholarship program we will once again be offering scholarships in 2014 for individuals interested in attending camp who don't have the financial resources to do so. We will take contributions until December 31, 2013 from those interested in underwriting this fund. It is our intention to continue this program beyond 2014, and any contributions we receive after Dec. 31, 2013 will go toward funding future scholarships.
We will take scholarship applications until December 31, 2013 and then notify the applicants of their status sometime in early January. Please click the following link to download the scholarship application:

The number of scholarships will depend on the amount of funding we can secure. Our hope will be to offer at least 2 full scholarships. Each full scholarship will include all camp entry fees as well as all travel expenses to and from Juneau (up to $850). In addition to the full scholarships we hope to have a limited amount of extra funding which we will offer as partial scholarships to those not selected for one of the full scholarships. Any of this funding which is not accepted would carry over into funding for future scholarships.
The success of this program depends largely on individual donors. That is, runners who are interested in helping fellow runners partake in something which they might otherwise never consider a possibility. In doing so you will be helping us broaden the sport of trail running to a more diverse and unique crowd. Something which we think will be a benefit to every trail runner. Any amount will be helpful toward realizing this goal. Please click the link below to donate online through paypal:
