Twin Cities in Motion

College Scholarship Program

The Twin Cities In Motion College Scholarship program awards a $5,000 scholarship to one female and one male 12-county metro area high school senior who participate in cross-country or track.

Twin Cities In Motion's College Scholarship Program awards a $5,000 scholarship to one male and one female high school senior cross-country or track participant. Eligible candidates must reside in the 12-county metro area: Anoka, Carver, Chisago, Dakota, Goodhue, Hennepin, Isanti, Ramsey, Scott, Sherburne, Washington, and Wright counties.

 

The one-time grant is awarded based on academic performance shown through both grades and the strength of the applicant's curriculum, leadership at school or in a peer group, a commitment to community service or helping others, and a dedication to maximizing running potential. TCM seeks scholarship applications at the start of each calendar year and names the winners in early May.

 

Twin Cities In Motion’s College Scholarship Program is one of the organization’s community outreach initiatives that include the Medtronic TC Kids Marathon, a community-wide effort that inspires healthy lifestyles among children, and the High School Running Shoe Program, which provides running shoes to high school cross country and track athletes in need.
