Our Scholarship

Our founder, Walter J. Brown, believed college education provided the best avenue towards success and fulfillment. In 1970, he established a private Foundation to support that belief. 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.

The Watson-Brown Foundation helped St. Julian prepare for his future. Why not see if we can help you too?
