Browning Scholarship to be Awarded to Top Browning Shooter at SCTP Finals

March 17, 2016 -- BROWNING – For the first time ever, Browning will be awarding a college scholarship at the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) National Championships on July 9-16, 2016 at the Cardinal Shooting Center in Marengo, Ohio. The scholarship will be awarded to the top scoring shooter in Singles Trap that uses a Browning shotgun during the competition. Exact details will be available soon on the SCTP website.

The total amount of the scholarship will be determined by auctions and a raffle of three Browning firearms. An A5 Ultimate and an X-Bolt White Gold Medallion will be auctioned off at a SCTP banquet, and through GunBroker.com. A season-long raffle will take place for a choice of either a Citori 725 Pro Trap or Citori 725 Pro Sporting. Tickets for the raffle will be available through SCTP.

“What a great opportunity for an SCTP athlete this July,” stated Tom Wondrash, SCTP National Director. “We can’t thank Browning enough for the wonderful support of our program and our athletes!”

The total scholarship amount raised will be announced at the SCTP National Championships on July 15, and the winning shooter will be awarded the scholarship immediately following the final shootout on July 16. Additional information regarding the Browning Collegiate Scholarship can be found on the SCTP website at http://sssfonline.org/scholastic-clay-target-program/

“We are thrilled to partner with the SCTP on the new Browning Collegiate Scholarship,” said Rafe Nielsen, Communications Manager at Browning. “We recognize the importance of getting the next generation involved in the shooting sports, and we hope this incentive will encourage more participants in the SCTP this year. We also want to thank all those who participate in raising these funds through the auctions and raffle. It is our hope that we can expand this scholarship program to more disciplines and recipients next year.”

In addition, Browning announces the continuation of their Competitive Youth Shooter rebate program. This program offers up to a $100 rebate on select Browning shotguns. This rebate program will help those interested in competing for the scholarship purchase a Browning shotgun at a discounted price. Information about the rebate program can be found on our promotions page. Or at a local Browning dealer.
