CTC annually awards $1,000 scholarships to one male and female from each local high school. To be considered for the scholarships, students must be involved in either track & field or cross country and be an active member of CTC where he/she has volunteered in various running/walking events. The scholarships are funded by club memberships, club-sponsored events and private donations. The club also awards scholarships to University of Missouri-Columbia exercise science students.
