Witherspoon Greek Alumni Scholarship
2015 Dr. Loy H. Witherspoon Scholarship - A Scholarship For EVERY COUNCIL
Thanks to the generous support of the UNC Charlotte community, this scholarship was fully endowed in October of 2015 and after ONE YEAR earnings will spin off funds for an annual award. The new goal of this project is to raise an additional $10,000 to support the 2016 awarding of the Dr. Loy H. Witherspoon Greek Alumni Scholarship. We would like to take advantage of the momentum around the November 13/14, 2015 Greek Reunion and raise $10,000 which will fund the following THIS YEAR:
- $5,000 to award five (5) scholarships at the 2016 Greek Awards Ceremony to a member from each of the five governing councils
- $5,000 to ensure that funding is available for the 2017 year and cushion the endowment fund.
