Watson-Brown Foundation Scholarships

The mission of the Watson-Brown Foundation is to provide college scholarships to area students based on merit and need. This internal scholarship program is entirely managed by the staff of the Foundation. Scholarship awards are decided by the Board of Trustees during its regular second quarter meeting. The Foundation awards individual annual scholarships of $3,000 and $5,000. Scholarships are renewable for the student's first four years of undergraduate study. Two hundred scholarships are awarded each year. Currently, the Foundation is funding more than 800 students at 140 colleges and universities across the country.


High school and undergraduate college students from 18 counties in Georgia and South Carolina are eligible for the scholarship. Scholarship recipients must attend four year, accredited U.S. colleges and universities. To be considered, scholarship applications and letters of recommendation must be completed ONLINE and supporting documents (transcript, tax forms) must be postmarked by February 15.

All scholarship checks are mailed directly from the Foundation to the financial aid office of the applicable college or university. Scholarship decision letters are mailed from the Foundation office on April 15.
