Thanks to the support from the cycling community and the cycling industry, WTF BX is able to offer nine SJ Brooks Scholarships in 2020 for specifically BIPOC FTWN/B cyclists. We sought to expand our scholarships this year and you showed up to make that happen!
In only one week, the community surpassed the $10k GoFundMe goal and raised an additional $2k to create six scholarships! With individual fundraisers and company support donations of $6k, three more scholarship opportunities were added. These combined efforts have shown us how amazing the community can be and gives us hope for the future.
At this time we are preparing for the scholarship application process with the committee review team and WTF BX staff. At the end of July, we will announce when scholarship applications are open via our newsletter and social.
So again, thank you! We are grateful for your generous donations and for making the SJ Brooks Scholarships the most impactful it has ever been.
