Pro Mountain Biker Scholarship

At (PMB) we are passionate about finding our readers the best mountain bike for their budget (for example, take a look at our best mountain bikes under $300 article), but we are also passionate about education and helping students with their studies. The staff at value the relationship between sports and education and truly believe in helping those in need. We also understand that education expenses can become prohibitive for many aspiring and even current students and that expenses related to tuition, books, and the cost of attending college or graduate school can easily run into thousands of dollars, if not more.


As such are pleased to offer the chance to win an annual $1,000 scholarship, to a student of their choosing, for any aspiring professional in any field that is currently enrolled in or has been accepted to (and planning to attend) a University or College in the United States, and that meets the criteria set out below.


To enter, submit a 500 word (or more) essay to [email protected] (.doc or .docx is the preferred file type). Your essay should be based on the following topic:
