CamelBak ® Announces Collegiate Cycling Grant Program

PETALUMA, CA--(Marketwired - May 12, 2016) -  CamelBak®, the global leader in personal hydration, is proud to announce a brand new collegiate cycling grant program that will provide scholarship dollars to college cycling teams across the country. CamelBak invites all collegiate cycling programs, Varsity and Club included, to demonstrate their team's Got Your Bak spirit through a written application and video submission on the company's website. Submissions should showcase how a team demonstrates dedication to each other -- whether it be on early morning training rides, long road trips, weekend races or grueling hill repeats.

Applications will be accepted now through September 5, 2016. CamelBak will select five CamelBak Collegiate Grant winners. Each winning team will receive $5,000 in grant funds to help get their team over the finish line with arms in the air. In addition to the grant, each team will have the opportunity to co-design a custom Podium bottle for their entire team.

"CamelBak invented the first hydration pack long before most of today's college students were born," said Jon Austen, Senior Director of Product at CamelBak. "We re-invented the bike bottle before many of them earned their driver's license. We are proud of our roots and innovation in cycling and want to encourage cyclists of all levels to celebrate the sport."
