Long-distance runners have the ability to push through when the finish line seems far away. These endurance skills can also be useful in the hunt for college scholarships. Many colleges in hopes of building an impressive track team offer athletic scholarships to cross country runners. While talent may be necessary for many NCAA awards, cross country runners also need to maintain a minimum GPA in order qualify for financial aid and to participate on a school’s track team. NCAA scholarships aren’t the only options available to cross country athletes. There are several long-distance running groups and organizations that also help runners pay for college. You don’t need to have the best time in order to qualify for cross country awards. Just take a look at this directory for scholarships that can help you add to your college funding.
