Brunswick Corp.’s dealer services team, Brunswick Dealer Advantage, and the Brunswick Foundation awarded 28 students of U.S. and Canadian dealer families a one-year $2,000 college scholarship as part of the 2015 Brunswick Foundation Sons and Daughters Scholarship program.
Since 2007, the program has recognized students for their 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.
"For the past nine years, the Brunswick Foundation Dealer Sons and Daughters Scholarship program has allowed us to directly help our dealers, their employees and their families," Brunswick Dealer Advantage marketing and program manager Kirsten Schuchardt said in a statement. "Brunswick Corp. remains committed to providing the best dealer support services in the industry and we are pleased to award these scholarships again this year."
Since its inception, the program has provided more than $500,000 to support the baccalaureate education of more than 250 students.
"I am truly honored to be chosen to receive one of the Brunswick scholarships this year," said scholarship winner Matthew Genung, whose father works for Winnipeg Sport and Leisure in Manitoba, Canada. "This scholarship takes a large financial load off my shoulders, which will allow me to stay focused on my studies and maintain my current academic standing and for which I am very appreciative."
