Nominations are Due for the Young Activist Scholarship

The MRF Awareness and Education, Inc. is reminding everyone that the Young Activist Scholarship nominations are due by July 15, 2011.  The YAS scholarship was started in 2004 to help usher in the next generation of freedom fighters in the motorcycle rights movement by bringing candidates to the Meeting of Minds Conference, that may not otherwise be able to do so. 

If you know someone whom you wish to nominate, please remember that candidates must between the ages of 18 to 30 years old, be an active member of an SMRO and have a valid motorcycle endorsement on their driver's license to be considered.  In addition to these basic qualifications, all applicants must submit a 300 word essay explaining why motorcycles rights are important to them along with their application.  All nominations must be submitted on YAS Scholarship form which can be downloaded on the MRF A&E website at

All YAS winners will receive an expenses paid trip to the 2011 Meeting of the Minds Conference in Romulus, MI from September 22-25th, along with a one year membership to the Motorcycle Riders Foundation.  While in Michigan, scholarship winners will be invited to participate in a round table discussion during one of the general sessions to open a dialogue with current members about connecting with the next generation of freedom fighters. 

For more details about the YAS scholarship, please visit or contact Carol Downs at  The winning candidates will be announced in an MRF e-mail alert in mid-August.  All other applications will notified with a letter of thanks and encouraged to re-submit their candidacy the following year to be reconsidered.
