Sport scholarships for african athletes
Press Release: Athletes USA partner with Millennium Marathon to provide track & field scholarship: Accra, Ghana, 13TH August 2015

This epic international marathon, in collaboration with the Race Director Haile Gebrselassie, one of  the finest runners of all time, will attract over 15,000 professional runners locally and internationally, as well as more than 100,000 spectators from around the country of Ghana. The half marathon will start from the Independence Square in Accra and pass through some of Accra’s tourist’s monuments while continuing the run along the Atlantic Ocean on Labadi beach road, across the Trade Fair and through some lovely streets of Accra, via the National theatre, Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum and back to the finish line at the Independence Square.

This is the first time Athletes USA has supported an event in Africa. This year the sport scholarship agency has been working closely with Athletes World Foundation to create athletic scholarship initiatives across the region. This partnership is the first of many to come and shows that Athletes USA and Athletes World Foundation are leading the way in providing dual career pathways for student-athletes.

Athletes USA and the Millennium Marathon are excited to offer the most eligible winner a track and field scholarship to America. The lucky athlete will be able to represent Ghana in a top American University for four years and will be able to graduate with a Bachelor’s degree.
