Named and established by the family of Wendi Allen in honor of this multi-time National Solo Champion who loved the SCCA Solo Community and wished to give back to the sport by helping young women become more successful drivers and contributing members of the Club
Purpose: To provide assistance to young women that show promise of developing into outstanding Solo drivers AND contributing supporters of the SCCA Solo program.
Scope: Select three recipients each year who are announced by early March, with each receiving $1,500 to support their travel to Tire Rack National Solo events and the Tire Rack Solo National Championship that year. Additionally, the SCCA will waive the event entry fees for the scholarship recipients at all Tire Rack National Solo events attended during the year, as well as work with the Solo Community and commercial partners to seek out other forms of support for the recipients, such as driver training, mentoring, products, and logistical assistance.
Process: A Selection Committee chosen by the SCCA consisting of championship caliber women Solo drivers is tasked with seeking out nominations, considering the merits of those nominated, and making final selections. Nominations will be solicited from SCCA members.
Context: While this scholarship fund is specifically directed to the three annual recipients, it is a key part of a broader SCCA initiative to involve more women in the sport of Solo and the Club. SCCA Regions and individual members of the Solo Community are encouraged to become a part of this drive through their efforts to invite, train, recognize, and support women to become active participating members of the Club.
Nominations can be sent to WENDIALLENSF@SCCA.com by February 28th.
