Fred Russell-Grantland Rice TRA Sports Writing Scholarship

The Fred Russell-Grantland Rice Scholarship, begun in 1956, originally was named in honor of the late Grantland Rice, a Vanderbilt alumnus and one of the best known sports writers of the 20th century. In 1986, the name was changed to also honor the late Fred Russell, another Vanderbilt alumnus who helped guide the scholarship and its recipients. A $500,000 grant was made on behalf of the TRA in 1986 to ensure the future of this valuable stipend. Click here for a list of previous winners.

The scholarship, co-sponsored by Vanderbilt, is awarded annually to an entering freshman at Vanderbilt who plans a career in sports journalism. In order to apply, high school seniors must apply for admission and complete the online Cornelius Vanderbilt scholarship application.

Subsidiaries of the TRA and The Jockey Club formed Equibase in a 1990 partnership to accumulate the racing data necessary for the unfettered growth of simulcast wagering. Prior to that time, the Daily Racing Form had been the sole collector of chart data and the dissemination of past performance information.

Recognizing the broadest possible availability of race data in daily racing programs was integral to the growth of simulcasting revenues for the tracks, the TRA found The Jockey Club a capable and eager partner in undertaking the technological and logistical issues association with building a data information company.

With the advent of the internet for general consumer use in the mid-Nineties, Equibase quickly found itself well-positioned to enter and serve the fast-growing world of electronic commerce.
