Yawkey Scholars Program

The Yawkey Scholars program is designed to make college affordable for talented, motivated, low-income students from Massachusetts and Georgetown County, South Carolina. It provides a four-year renewable tuition scholarship (up to $25,000 per year) and other supports to help students achieve academically and go on to be successful and highly productive members of our community. Over the past ten years, the Yawkey Scholars Program has provided nearly $9 million in tuition supports to 238 Scholars as they pursue a college education at private colleges in Massachusetts and in South Carolina.
