Watson-Brown Foundation Scholarships

The primary 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. Approximately 150 new scholarships and 200 renewal scholarships are awarded each year.

Scholarships are reserved for students from Georgia or South Carolina who attend four- year, accredited U.S. colleges and universities. Scholarships are awarded to high school seniors and current undergraduate students. To be considered, scholarship applications -- complete with required support documents -- must be postmarked by February 15.

The Watson-Brown Foundation scholarships are awarded to students from communities in and near the Savannah River valley where Brown was raised and spent the majority of his adult life.
