The International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) has opened the application process to award its second IMSA Diverse Driver Development Scholarship.
From now through July 22, qualified drivers can submit applications to be considered for the scholarship. Benefits include a prepaid full-season entry fee for the recipient into either the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge, or IMSA Prototype Challenge for 2023 and 50% of the full-season entry fee into one of those series for 2024. Added benefits of the scholarship bring its value to more than $250,000.
To be eligible for the scholarship, candidates must be female or a member of an ethnic minority classification, have outstanding previous race results or proven on-track potential and have the ability to compete in an entire season of one of the three IMSA-sanctioned series mentioned above.
Jaden Conwright is the first recipient of the scholarship. The 23-year-old Californian has used it to drive in the WeatherTech Championship in the 2022 season, with a best finish thus far of sixth place in the GT Daytona (GTD) class at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca as co-driver of the No. 42 NTE/SSR Lamborghini Huracán GT3.
