Edith Echols Education Alumni Scholarship
The Edith Fletcher Echols Education Alumni Scholarship is intended for a home economics major or for a person in a related field. Since Georgia College no longer offers a home economics major, the Alumni and Foundation Scholarship Selection Committee gives preference to an student majoring in education. Gender, class ranking, and geographic locale are not factors. The GPA must be 3.0 or greater.
