Brunswick Corp.’s dealer services team, Brunswick Dealer Advantage, and the Brunswick Foundation recently announced the winners of the 2017 Brunswick Foundation Sons and Daughters Scholarship program.
A one-year, $2,000 college scholarship was awarded to each of 28 students of Brunswick dealer families in the United States and Canada.
"Brunswick Corporation remains committed to providing the best dealer support services in the industry and we are pleased to award these scholarships for the 10th consecutive year," said Kirsten Schuchardt, program manager for Brunswick Dealer Advantage, in a statement.
"The Brunswick Foundation Dealer Sons and Daughters Scholarship program continues to allow us to help our dealers, their employees and their families in a very special way. We congratulate all of the winners for their hard work and wish them the best of luck for the upcoming school year,” Schuchardt added.
For the past decade the scholarship program has recognized students for academic excellence, leadership capabilities and community involvement during the past school year.
This year's scholarship recipients were chosen by an independent committee of academic professionals from leading Midwestern universities.
"I am extremely honored and thankful to receive this scholarship from Brunswick," said scholarship winner Mia Emberson, whose father, Mike, is the owner of Zacho Sports Center in Chippewa Falls, Wis. "It will help offset the cost of my education at the University of Minnesota, and allow me to focus on my goal of treating others in the health care field. Thank you to the Brunswick Foundation for helping me follow my dreams."
Since its inception, the Brunswick Dealer Advantage and the Brunswick Foundation have provided more than $600,000 to support the higher education of more than 300 students from Brunswick dealerships in the United States and Canada.
The Brunswick dealer scholarship program is a key part of Brunswick Dealer Advantage, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this fall.
