The Jasper Bryant, Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund awarded scholarships to students graduating from Dooly County High School and attending their freshman year of college in the 2020-2021 academic year with plans to major in Education.
To be considered for the scholarship, students must meet the eligibility criteria. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the scholarship deadline has been extended to May 15. All applicants will be notified on June 14, 2020. Scholarship monies are for the payment of tuition, fees, and/or books, but not for room and board. If the scholarship funds are not used for these fees before January 1, 2021, recipients may lose eligibility for a monetary award and the monies will be returned to the Jasper Bryant, Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Proof of acceptance from a post-secondary educational program leading to a degree is required to obtain the scholarship monies.
