The Bill Shrader Sr. Memorial Scholarships have been established in the memory of Bill Shrader, Sr., an outstanding life-long runner and one of the founding members of the Hudson Mohawk Road Runners Club. The purpose of the program is to encourage and support young runners in their efforts to make running a lifelong part of a healthy lifestyle. On an annual basis, six $3,000 non-renewable scholarships will be awarded to runners planning to attend a college, university or community college on a full-time basis. Awards will be made to the top two scoring males, top two scoring females, and the next two highest scoring runners, male or female, as selected by the Committee. The awards will be limited to track or cross-country runners currently attending a Section II high school.

To apply, a student athlete must complete the application form and satisfy the eligibility requirements outlined below. Applications must be received by April 1, 2023. The HMRRC Selection Committee will determine the Scholarship award winners. Winners will be announced by May 1, 2024.
