Minority students from low-income families do not have equal access to a college education.
Since 1991, GECAC has helped open doors for students from low-income families by providing scholarships for those who need them most.
The mission of the R. Benjamin Wiley / Walter L. Osborne Minority Scholarship is to encourage and enable ethnic minority students to go to college and realize the impact they can have on themselves and the community through education.
The amount of the scholarship to be awarded is $1,000 per year for 4 years that a student is enrolled full-time at a college or university. The scholarship will be paid directly to the awardee.
To apply for the R. Benjamin Wiley / Walter L. Osborne Minority Scholarship, the student must meet the following guidelines.
All completed applications must be postmarked by May 2, 2022. All applicants will be notified of their selection or denial by June 13, 2022.
Money for the scholarships is raised through the GECAC Golf Classic. Great golf for a great cause!
