LAKE FOREST, Ill., Sept. 6, 2016 - Brunswick Corporation's (NYSE: BC) dealer services team, Brunswick Dealer Advantage, and the Brunswick Foundation, recently announced that 28 deserving students of dealer families from both the U.S. and Canada have each been awarded a one-year, $2,000 college scholarship as part of the 2016 Brunswick Foundation Sons and Daughters Scholarship program. 

Since 2007, the Brunswick Foundation Sons and Daughters Scholarship Program has recognized students for their academic excellence, leadership capabilities and community involvement during the past school year.

"Brunswick Corporation remains committed to providing the best dealer support services in the industry and we are pleased to award these scholarships for the tenth consecutive year," said Kirsten Schuchardt, marketing and program manager for Brunswick Dealer Advantage.  "The Brunswick Foundation Dealer Sons and Daughters Scholarship program has allowed us to directly help our dealers, their employees and their families."

"I am very thankful to have received this scholarship.  This will definitely help relieve the financial pressures of me and my family," said scholarship winner Miranda Nikkel, whose father Greg Nikkel works for NR Motors LTD in Manitoba, Canada.
