We love to share scholarships that are of interest to or apply to the motorsports community, and this is a great motorsports scholarship in memory of racer Jeff Krosnoff that we’d like motorsports students to be aware of. All information has be obtained through the Jeff Krosnoff Scholarship Fund website.
The scholarship will award $10,000, payable to the college or university the winner will attend.
Racing was a dream come true for Jeff, and the organizers and sponsors of the scholarship hope that the money awarded will help the recipient in reaching his or her own dreams. The scholarship will not only help Jeff’s legacy live on, but also help in creating a better future for deserving young adults.
