College Scholarships

$5,000 College Scholarships Announced By Dipsea Race Foundation

The Dipsea Race Foundation plans to award several $5,000 scholarships to students graduating from high school this year who have participated in or volunteer for the Annual Dipsea Race and are attending college this fall. Scholarship winners planning to enroll in a two year program will receive $2,500.

Financial need, the sincerity and quality of an essay, community service, leadership, athletic performance and academics are the criteria by which the candidates will be judged, and each category is weighed equally. Students who score high in all areas will be the likely winners. We want to encourage and support well-rounded individuals.

The 2014 Scholarship winners have been chosen. Congratulations to all!

Applications for 2015 scholarships will be posted on this website in early 2015. Completed applications must be received by May 1, 2015. You can still view last year's applications in now in either Word or PDF format.

The self-discipline required to train for a difficult cross country race and the sense of community responsibility that's demonstrated by volunteering to stage a local event are virtues that can be transferred to other aspects of life. That is why the Dipsea Race Foundation offers scholarships to outstanding young men and women who have participated in the Annual Dipsea Race and are residents in California.

As donations are received and the scholarship fund is increased, the board intends to widen the number of students who receive the grants and increase the size of the awards.

In 2005, friends and family of Wyby Mercer funded a $2,500 scholarship in his memory.

In 2011, an annual scholarship fund was established in the name of Bill Patterson - a great lover of the Dipsea. The fund is perpetual. The first scholarship in the amount of $5000 was awarded at the Dipsea Foundation Dinner in 2011.
