One of the goals of the Anchorage Running Club and Anchorage RunFest is to raise scholarship funds annually for Anchorage high school runners to help with their education expenses.
The Anchorage Running Club will award up to 3 $3,500 scholarships in 2023 - Application Period Closed
Anchorage high school graduating seniors who are runners are eligible to apply. This includes seniors from public, private and charter schools, as well as those who are home-schooled, within the Municipality of Anchorage.
Minimum qualifications include two years of participation in running activities during high school -- track and/or cross country running. In addition to the student's involvement with running, the Scholarship Committee considers the student's community involvement and service, commitment to a healthy lifestyle, academic ability and financial need. We are not necessarily looking for the fastest runners -- we are looking for enthusiasm for running now and into the future!
Anchorage high school seniors who are interested and qualified are encouraged to download the ARC 2023 Scholarship Application and submit it according to the instructions with the Application Form. The application deadline is March 18, 2023.
We will announce the 2023 Scholarship recipients by the end of April 2023.
