What youth runner doesn’t dream of getting a “full ride” to run in college? As ones senior year approaches, you may find those dreams are more complicated than you think. Choosing private versus public, Division I, II, III, NAIA, or community college, potential major(s), and the many other factors that play a key role in your decision clouds the process. Add in the financials, what you can reasonably afford, Financial Aid, scholarship and grant opportunities, the list of factors amasses.
In time, there will be a resource page on Whisper Community’s website. Whisper Community is a nonprofit prioritizing physical and intellectual/academic growth in Clark County youth runners. For now, any information we presently have can be found here. If you would like to contribute information, such as grant and scholarship opportunities, please send your information to Dave Caldwell via email. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation, assisting future Clark County youth runners, please see our Whisper Community website. Thank you!
The following PowerPoint presentation comes from Lizette Drennan, a Financial Aid program specialist at Clark College. Lizette is also a seasoned runner and advocate for youth development, as evident by her 20+ years of serving students at Clark College. Lizette put together this presentation specifically for Whisper Running, which includes information around Financial Aid, Scholarships, and Grants, which is a great place to start when planning the financial piece of college education.

In the coming weeks, months, and beyond, more information will be added to this blog post, then transferred to the Whisper Community website as a resource.
