The Charles M. Rowson, Jr. Memorial Scholarship was established in 1983 by the Orlando Runners Club in memory of one of our members, Chuck Rowson, who died unexpectedly at age 29. The ORC has provided scholarships each year to local high school athletes, most recently providing a $2,000 scholarship to up to four students, for a total of $8,000.  The winners are selected by the Club based on their academic achievements, athletic abilities, school and community involvement and financial need. The scholarships are presented at a club event in late spring/early summer.

Applicants must be graduating high school seniors in Orange, Osceola, Lake, or Seminole, counties who have competed in cross country, track, or both. A completed scholarship application and letters of recommendation must be received by the ORC by April 4, 2024. Funds for the scholarship program are made possible in part by the volunteer efforts of our club members and their families at the annual IOA Corporate 5K event in Orlando, and by proceeds from our annual Race into Summer 5k. The ORC respectfully requests that all scholarship recipients and/or their families volunteer to assist with our annual club Race Into Summer 5k. 

Applicants may download and complete the application available to the left.

Applications may be submitted by mail to the Orlando Runners Club, PO Box 1134, Orlando, FL 32802, or scan and email to president@orlandorunnersclub.org.  Applications must be received by April 4, 2024.
