About the Hoss:
The Hoss Scholarship was established in 2010 by a group of Illinois Wesleyan cross country and track & field alumni, friends, and family who wished to honor their time at IWU by supporting a current IWU student.

At every IWU cross country meet, the team recognizes one male and one female runner with "The Hoss" award. Sometimes The Hoss is selected for his/her team spirit, determination, or personal best performance, other times for inspiring others. Despite the loose description, it is typically very clear who has earned The Hoss in each week's race.

To honor the spirit of this award, we support a student who exhibits Hoss-like qualities in his or her contributions to the campus community.

Goal: Fund as many $2,500 scholarships as we can each year.
