The Georgia’s Own Foundation is pleased to announce that the John B. White, Jr. Memorial Scholarship, presented by Georgia’s Own Credit Union, is now accepting applications for the 2017 award.
The $5,000 scholarship is a need-based award that will be granted to a high school senior who will be the first generation in their family to attend college. Eligible applicants must be graduating from an accredited Georgia high school and accepted to attend a public university in the state of Georgia.
John B. White, Jr. served the members of Georgia’s Own Credit Union for 33 years as an insightful, kind and impactful member of its Board of Directors. He was a strong advocate for our members and our employees and left an indelible imprint on our organization.
To honor the legacy of Mr. White, the Georgia’s Own Foundation has established the John B. White, Jr. Memorial Scholarship to be awarded to a graduating high school senior who is as inspired by the world around them and is as committed to making their community a better place as he was. As Mr. White’s belief that education and service in tandem will make our world a better and more harmonious place to live, this scholarship will help fund the recipient’s collegiate tuition as an acknowledgement and thanks for their previous accomplishments and future contributions.
The application acceptance period runs from March 1, 2017 until May 26, 2017. Interested in applying? Click here for more details about the scholarship.
