Scholarship Criteria: 

The “Bulldogs on the Run Scholarship” is a non-renewal academic based scholarship for juniors and seniors enrolled in the Health Sciences and Biological & Physical Sciences Departments at South Carolina State University. The scholarship was established in 2019 by a group of SCSU alumni to add a new and exciting event to the university’s homecoming activities to support students and promote enjoyment, healthiness, and unity. 

The purpose of this scholarship is to financially assist two (2) students with a $5,000.00 scholarship in their junior and/or senior year and whose career plans are to pursue: an area of allied health, health education, health promotion, or physical education. 

The scholarship winners will be announced during the award ceremony of the 2023 BULLDOGS ON THE RUN 5K & BARK.
