Ruta Maya Cycling Scholarship
Thanks to a generous donation by one of our past riders, we have the lucky job of selecting 2 deserving young people for a cycling scholarship to participate in the 2016 Ruta Maya. Here is what is included in the scholarship:
- Flights to and from Central America
- Entry fee to participate in the 5-week cycling tour through 5 countries in
- An allowance for equipment and clothing needed
- An allowance for pre-tour costs – getting passports and other expenses
- Pocket money during the tour
We have already chosen one worthy candidate from our home city of Toronto – thanks to Charlie’s Freewheels who found an ideal candidate amongst its graduates from their build-a-bike program.
Here is the criteria for the second participant to be awarded a scholarship:
- Must be between 18 and 25 years old
- Must have a strong background in community service
- Must be generally fit and healthy
- Must be ready to show proof that the trip and its expenses are beyond their means
If you think you qualify or know someone who might, please let us know as soon as possible.
