Welcome to the official Web site of the Stewart-Collins Memorial Scholarship Fund.
The Stewart-Collins Memorial Scholarship Fund at Furman University was established in 2000 by Glenn Stewart in memory of his parents: Glenn E. Stewart, Sr. and Hazel E. Stewart; maternal grandmother Myrtle L. Collins; and great aunt Maude L. Collins.
Rather than being a purely academic award, the Stewart-Collins Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to students with solid academic credentials and a determination to succeed. This scholarship fund is designed to help those from perhaps humble circumstances who might have had responsibilities and obligations outside of school that prevented them from giving full attention to their school work. This scholarship offers to help those students fulfill their potential and pursue their dreams.
