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 Tyler prepare for his future. Why not see if we can help you too?

“The Watson-Brown Scholarship has opened so many doors for me over the past year and a half. Over the past year, I have been able to get involved on campus with multiple organizations. It provided me with funds to pay for school books and gave me time to settle into the campus without the stress of working and attending school.”
