The Foundation was established by the late Tyrus R. Cobb for the purpose of assisting capable and deserving residents of Georgia who need financial assistance in completing their college education. Foundation scholarships are granted to qualified students for the purpose of attending an accredited college or university full time. The college or university must be accredited by a regional crediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education.
The Ty Cobb Education Foundation offers scholarships to undergraduate students who are residents of Georgia, are U.S. citizens and have demonstrated financial need, are full-time students and have completed at least 30 semester or 45 quarter hours of academic credits with an average of “B” or higher in an accredited college or university. This is also open to professional students who are pursuing their MD/DO or DMD/DDS degrees. Students with higher academic averages and the greatest financial need will be given priority. Dollar amounts for the scholarship will vary.
