In 2014, the Fort Lewis College Road Scholars (with generous contributions from IHBC) raised over $9,000 for the Iron Horse Bicycle Classic Scholarship Fund. This fund is helping over 100 current students in the Finish in Four! Program, an agreement first-time freshmen can make with the College that guarantees students access to the classes needed to graduate in four years in exchange for deadline commitments. Participating students work with advisors to develop academic plans that identify critical course sequencing to assure a timely graduation, saving students the time and costs of longer undergraduate careers. Thanks to the Iron Horse Bicycle Classic Fund, students in the program are eligible for a $500-per-semester scholarship, starting with their second semester and worth $3,500 over their college careers.
