William Gregg Scholarship

In honor of William Gregg and in order to encourage young people to continue their education, the Gregg-Graniteville Foundation, Inc. created the William Gregg Scholarship. The scholarship amount is seven thousand dollars ($7,000) a year for resident and non-resident students attending a four year college. Scholarships are also available to students who attend a technical college. The scholarship amount, for technical college, will vary depending upon the cost of tuition. Since the inception of these scholarships, over $3,000,000 in scholarships have been awarded.

Scholarships are open to eligible high school graduates of the current school year who reside in the defined Gregg Park Service Boundaries. Graduates of the prior school year will be considered if good cause can be shown for delay in applying.

Application forms are mailed to area high school guidance counselors, and may be obtained from the high school guidance office. Applications may also be picked up at Gregg Park Civic Center by contacting Ms. Diana Silas.

Applications are due, not later than February 1 each year. Those applying for the scholarship should forward their application to Ms. Diana M. Silas, Executive Director, Gregg-Graniteville Foundation, Inc., P. O. Box 418, Graniteville, SC.
