Red Raider Road Race Scholarships

West Texas Running Club is pleased to announce the WTRC/Texas Tech University Scholarships.  
Applications are due by Aug 25th.

Applicants must:

  • Have a letter of nomination from a WTRC member
  • Complete and submit a standardized application form
  • Attend Texas Tech University.

Preference will be given to undergraduate students who are permanent residents of West Texas as defined: the area north of Interstate 20 as far west as Pecos and to west of a line from Abilene to Wichita Falls. Preference will also be given to full-time students (minimum 12 credit hours) who have completed at least one semester. Stipends of up to $1000 per semester will be awarded based on the following criteria: participation in extracurricular activities, participation in school activities, leadership positions held, academic record, and financial need. Special consideration is given to candidates who participate in activities that are consistent with the goals of the club. It is expected that recipients of this scholarship either run in or volunteer at the Red Raider Road Race the morning of the event(mid-October). Scholarship applications are due on Aug 30th… In the event that funds are still available after the initial awards have been made, late applications will be considered.

We look forward to seeing these winners at our annual Red Raider Road Race 10K and 5K, held on the Texas Tech Campus(September)… See the Red Raider Road Race page for details.

Club members are encouraged to submit nominations for scholarship candidates to: Emmanuel Ramirez
