The Eve Mills Scholarship Fund
GOTR Program Scholarships
Our founder, Eve Mills, believed that Girls on the Run of Montgomery County should strive to touch the loves of young girls throughout Montgomery County, MD regardless of their families' economic status. In her honor, we have established a scholarship fund to ensure that limited finances never deter a girl from particiapting.
- Eligibility: Our program cost is $160. However, a limited number of scholarships are awarded to girls in need of financial assistance in order to participate in the program. Currently we have 3 levels of financial assistance: $80 for families that qualify for FARMS, $10 for families that qualify for FARMS and have a household income less than $30,000, and full financial assistance. There is a $3 processing fee per each registration.
Shoe Scholarship Program
Girls on the Run will do our best to provide running shoes to any girl that qualifies and truly needs new shoes. Girls on the Run is fortunate to partner with Suburban Hospital to achieve this goal. Each season, Suburban Hospital generously supports our shoe purchase program.
- Eligibility: Any girl that is receiving the program at the $10 level or on full scholarship will qualify for free shoes.
- How to Apply: Coaches will provide a list of girls that are both eligible and in need after the first lesson. We do not guarantee that we can fill every request. A recipient may only receive one new pair per school year even if they run both seasons.
