Submissions Open for SCCA 2022 Wendi Allen Scholarship

The Wendi Allen Scholarship Fund (WASF) benefitting female drivers wishing to compete in or grow their involvement in Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) autocross is now accepting applications and nominations for 2022 award winners, the organization announced.

Nominations or applications are due by March 1 and should include what makes someone a good nominee, how they got started in autocross, competitive background, SCCA involvement and plans for the 2022 SCCA Solo season, program officials said.

Three women will be chosen to receive $1,500 to assist with travel to Tire Rack National Solo events and the Tire Rack Solo Nationals Championship. Additionally, the SCCA will waive entry fees for scholarship winners to all Tire Rack National Solo events attended during the year.

A selection committee of successful female SCCA Solo drivers will make the final decision on the prize after reviewing the 2022 nomination and application forms, the organization said. The scholarship was established by the family of late multi-time National championship driver Wendi Allen. The goal of the WASF is to support women and assist them in becoming more successful drivers. Since 2014, the WASF has lent a hand to 20 female drivers.

Continuing its long-standing position of helping all racers, including support for women in motorsports, Mazda will again support one of the scholarship winners who competes in a Mazda.

“The Wendi Allen Scholarship aligns with the goals of Mazda Motorsports, to assist competitors in chasing their motorsports ambitions,” David Cook, manager, Mazda Motorsports Business Development, said. “It’s a privilege for us to work with the folks at SCCA to support this scholarship, and continue to watch and root for all of the past winners of the award.”

The remaining two scholarships will continue to be funded by the SCCA Foundation, which accepts donations on the Foundation website all year long for the WASF and other projects.
