Brunswick hands out family scholarships

For the 54th year, the Brunswick Foundation awarded 74 scholarships to sons and daughters of Brunswick Corp. employees.

Each will receive a single-year scholarship of $2,500.

The winners span 25 Brunswick locations worldwide and represent the company's corporate staff, as well as all Brunswick business units: Brunswick Boat Group, Brunswick Bowling & Billiards, Life Fitness and Mercury Marine.

“With an abiding belief in the value of education, as well as a deep commitment to helping the sons and daughters of our employees to achieve their goals, the Brunswick Foundation is proud to have continued such support uninterrupted for more than 50 years,” said B. Russell Lockridge, vice president and chief human resources officer for Brunswick and a foundation director, in a statement.

Scholarships are based on the applicant's academic record and leadership abilities, demonstrated by extracurricular activities. Financial need is an additional consideration, and scholarships can only be used toward a baccalaureate degree.
