United Way and WCRP Establish a
Scholarship for Young Women in West Tennessee

Applicants must reside in West Tennessee and should have maintained a B average or above throughout high school. The scholarship recipient must adhere to this same academic standard while pursuing an undergraduate degree. After completing the initial application, applicants should submit three academic/character references and a personal essay that includes a statement of financial need and their college aspirations.

A five-member advisory committee comprised of community and WCRP members will review, select,
and notify the recipient by March 31, 2023. United Way will then annually distribute tuition payments to
the recipient’s college or university of choice.

Dr. Jones has agreed to match contributions to the fund up to a total of $50,000. Donors can contribute
by visiting bjonesfund.org. For more information or questions, contact mmarshall@unitedway.tn.org.
