Brunswick Corporation : Brunswick Foundation Awards 70 Scholarships to Sons and Daughters of Company Employees

  
LAKE FOREST, Ill., May 31, 2012 - For the 55th consecutive year, the Brunswick Foundation has awarded a total of 70 scholarships to sons and daughters of Brunswick Corporation (NYSE: BC) employees.  Each will receive a single-year scholarship of $2,500.

The winners span across 36 Brunswick locations worldwide, and represent the Company's corporate staff as well as all Brunswick business units: Brunswick Boat Group, Brunswick Bowling & Billiards, Life Fitness and Mercury Marine.

"We at Brunswick have a deep respect for the value of education, and an abiding commitment to assisting the sons and daughters of our employees to achieve their goals of securing a good education.  Uninterrupted for 55 years, the Brunswick Foundation has honored this commitment," said B. Russell Lockridge, vice president and chief human resources officer for Brunswick and a Foundation Director.

Scholarship recipients are selected by an independent committee comprised of education professionals from Northwestern University, Evanston, Ill., University of Chicago Booth School of Business, University of Notre Dame, South Bend, Ind. and Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wis.  Scholarships are awarded based on the applicants' academic record and leadership abilities as demonstrated by extracurricular activities. Financial need is an additional consideration, and scholarships can only be used toward a baccalaureate degree.

The Brunswick Foundation has been awarding scholarships to the children of Brunswick employees since its inception in 1957.  In total, the Foundation has awarded more than $10 million in scholarships during that time.
