Work Scholarship

Opportunity for an Education

"What a blessing that was!"

"I received a scholarship from the Callaway Foundation. We called them work scholarships. If you qualified for the scholarship and received the scholarship, you would also receive a job so that when you were not in school, you could work three months for money that would carry you through the next three months in school. What a blessing that was! And so I received that scholarship, and I had a choice of schools I could go to. I could go to Clemson, or I could go to Auburn, but then the Callaway Foundation built a university as part of the University of Georgia today. They built the university, and we could go there to school much more economically than we could at another university. So I decided I'd try that for my first year."
