Rowson Scholarship

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 since to local high school athletes, now providing a $1,500 scholarship to up to four students, for a total of $6,000. The Charles M. Rowson, Jr. Scholarship has become recognized as one of Central Florida's most prestigious awards given to graduating seniors with an interest in running. The winners are selected by the Club based on their academic achievements, athletic abilities, school and community involvement and financial need. Scholarships are presented each year at a Club event.
