    SPRR Scholarship Award 2017

    January 31, 2017


    The SPRR Scholarship, established in 2012, is awarded annually to two high school seniors (one public school and one private/independent school) who excel in academics and are avid runners.  To be eligible for this $2000 scholarship, students must meet the following criteria:

    • Be enrolled in a Pinellas County private or public school
    • Earned a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale
    • Be a member of their varsity cross-country or track team
    • Plan to enroll in a college or university in the fall of 2017

    The SPRR Scholarship is a one-time award; the scholarship award will be presented to the award recipients at the annual April SPRR Monthly meeting on April 13th at the Dolphin Beach Resort.

    Students must submit the attached application along with their official high school transcript. Students must also submit two letters of recommendation from people who know the seniors as athletes and/or students (i.e. varsity coach, athletic director, guidance counselor, teacher, staff).

    Applications must be received no later than March 1, 2017.  Our scholarship committee will review all submissions, confirm information with high school administrators and, if necessary, request an interview with the candidates.  The scholarship recipients will be notified by March 18, 2017, and will be expected to attend the award ceremony April 13, 2017, with a parent or guardian.

    Please submit completed SPRR_Scholarship_App2017, letters of reference and transcript to or:
