Judy Sights has sent me a note asking that I help the SCTA publicize the new scholarship program they, along with the BNI, have developed. Here's the letter I got - and a reminder that you can go to the SCTA/BNI website for more information. Judy also mentions that they're looking for folks to volunteer to judge the applications they receive. If you've got questions -- ask via email to the SCTA. Document follows:
"We, the Scholarship committee, are pleased to announce the establishment of the SCTA/BNI Scholarship program. It has been funded by BNI and will be administrated by SCTA.
This program seeks to assist dedicated students who show an aptitude and/or interest in pursuing studies in vehicle engineering or another field that is related to or supportive of Land Speed Racing. The purposes of the Program are several. First - we want to support our young people in their pursuit of an education plus encourage their participation in our sport. Additionally, as we are a not-for-profit organization, we hope that this Program will help to publicize our activities to not only students but to the general public as well.
Reading from the front page of the application: “Any individual may apply for the scholarship, providing that his/her area of study is pursuant with some facet of Land Speed Racing, i.e. engineering, math, alternative energy, business management, etc. Applicants must also be recommended by an affiliated member of the Land Speed Racing community.” That could include any of our racing communities such as USFRA, ECTA, etc.
The requirements are listed on the SCTA website (www.scta-bni.org) along with the entire application.
DO YOU HAVE A STUDENT TO RECOMMEND?"
