The Jeff Saint Scholarship Fund
The Jeff Saint Scholarship Fund was launched due to the generosity of camp dad and fellow runner, Jeff Saint (see Jeff's bio here). Founder and President of Marina Plastics, Jeff attended Hillsdale College in Michigan and after joining us as a camper a few summers ago, caught the vision and mission of the camp. We are thrilled to have Jeff partner with us so that we are able to offer scholarships to the Jim Ryun Running Camps!
This application is for a full scholarship to any of our three camps. This does not include transportation to and from camp. In addition to completing the form below, you will need a letter of recommendation from a non-family member. This letter must include the full name, address, email and phone number of the person writing the letter, as they will be contacted in the event that you are among the finalists. Consider asking a mentor, coach, pastor or employer. The application process is not complete until this letter is received. Recommendation letters will need to be mailed to:
The Jim Ryun Running Camp
c/o Becca Ryun
P.O. Box 922
Aledo, TX 76008
Thirdly, should you receive a scholarship you are agreeing to partner with us in spreading the word about the Jim Ryun Running Camp as a Camp Ambassador. We will ask you to complete three tasks in this role:
1. Distribute 100 camp flyers at one of your cross country meets during the 2018 season. We'll happily mail you these flyers free of charge.
2. We ask that you share with your friends through either Instagram or Facebook your favorite moment or experience while at camp, as well as repost 5 of your favorite posts from our Instagram account (@jimryunrunningcamp) sometime in the 6 months following our 2018 camps.
3. Refer 10 members of your team (name and email) that you think would also enjoy and benefit from camp. We would love the opportunity to share camp with them via email.
