Ken Schwisow Memorial Scholarship

Inspired by the competitive spirit and the many years of volunteerism, leadership, and support Ken Schwisow gave to the running community in our area, the Merced Running Club Board initiated a scholarship in his honor in October 2000.  The scholarship is open to all students graduating from high schools in Merced or Atwater, who plan to attend either a two year or a four year college.   The scholarship is also open to any MRC members who are graduating from any other high school.  The scholarship is a one-time award of $750.

Applicants must have participated in cross-country or track and field in high school and/or be an active member of the Merced Running Club.  A completed application with the supporting material must be submitted to MRC through the individual’s school.   Applicants may use the scholarship application form from his/her own high school, as long as it conforms to that of Generic Application of Merced Union High School District.  Scholarship applications should be submitted to: Merced Running Club
