The Jason D. Morse ’98 Memorial Scholarship honors former EU swimmer Jason Morse, who died in 2017 after a three-and-a-half-year battle with recurrent adult Wilms Cancer. Morse competed for the EU swimming and diving program from 1994 to 1998, and he left the program as the EU school record holder in the 500 yard freestyle. Jason was heavily involved on campus and was a member of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity while at UE.
The initial fundraising goal for the Jason D. Morse Memorial Scholarship ’98 is $50,000. The fund will be used only for an athletics scholarship awarded annually to a member of the men’s or women’s swimming and diving program.
Anyone with questions about how they can contribute to the Jason D. Morse ’98 Memorial Scholarship Fund should contact Senior Associate Athletic Director for Development and External Operations Scott Peace by phone (812-488 -4073) or email (sp16[email protected]).
