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 amount of the annual award for the scholarship was increased in 2013.  The scholarship is open to all students graduating from Merced, Golden Valley, Atwater, and Buhach Colony High Schools 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. 

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.   Each school may use their own application as long as it conforms to Merced High School's. 

The scholarship award will be for $750.

All Merced Running Club members are encouraged to support this scholarship by making a donation when they renew their membership.  All donations to this fund will be tax deductible.
