Margaret Bradley/Paul Phinney Scholarship Program

As a public service to the community, the Falmouth Track Club funds the Margaret Bradley/Paul Phinney Scholarship Program aimed at supporting college-bound high school seniors who have been active in Cross Country and/or Track and Field in high school. In addition, preference will be given to students who have volunteered for FTC-sponsored events and/or the Falmouth Road Race, and who are members and/or whose parents are members of the FTC.

This year the FTC will award five $1000 Margaret Bradley/Paul Phinney Scholarships to deserving senior high school students.

Students attending Falmouth High School should apply for the scholarship through the Falmouth HS Guidance Department. High school seniors from other schools may apply by downloading and completing the application and mailing it to: Falmouth Track Club, PO Box 699, W. Falmouth, MA 02574

The deadline for all applications is May 8, 2015.

If you have any questions on the Scholarship Program, please contact one of the Members-at-Large, currently Paul DiAngelis (pdiangelis@gmail.com) or John Banner (jlewis138@gmail.com).
