Members of Team McAllen Cycling presented a $3,000 check to The University of Texas-Pan American recently to establish a scholarship in the group's name.

As part of the partnership, Team McAllen Cycling members agreed to contribute to the scholarship every year with funds they raise during cycling and other sport events including a triathlon they're organizing this summer.Five scholarships of $500 each will be distributed yearly. Undergraduate and graduate students from any of UTPA's seven colleges will be eligible to apply for the scholarships.
