for High School Dipsea Community Members
The Dipsea Race Foundation offers scholarships annually to outstanding young men and women who have participated in the Dipsea Race, are residents of California, and are graduating high school seniors. The Dipsea Race Foundation awards Dipsea Race participants – as runners or volunteers – because we believe that the self-discipline required to train for a difficult cross country-race and the sense of community service demonstrated by volunteering are virtues that can be transferred to other aspects of life.
The Scholarship Committee of the Dipsea Race Foundation awards scholarships based on a variety of criteria, including the applicant’s financial need, performance of community service, academic and athletic performance, Dipsea Race involvement as a race participant or volunteer, and the sincerity and quality of the personal essay. The Committee encourages well-rounded individuals and seeks to support their continued development.
The Scholarship Committee reviews scholarship applications and reports back to the Board of Directors of the Dipsea Race Foundation. The members of the Committee include Tim Fitzpatrick, Jason Cheng, Liebe Patterson, and Chuck Miller, who chairs the Scholarship Committee and also is a member of the Board of the Dipsea Race Foundation.
