Giving primarily for community development and human services; funding also for the arts. Scholarships have also been established to help fund the college education of highly promising high school students in Bibb County, GA, who have been residents for the past 2 years and who are graduating high school seniors with a 2.0 GPA, who are graduating from a Bibb County public high school or private high school accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), and demonstrate academic promise, strong character, community involvement, and financial need. All scholarship recipients must register as full-time students in an undergraduate degree program at one of the following Georgia schools: Central Georgia Technical College, Fort Valley State University, Georgia College and State University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia Southern University, Georgia State University, Kennesaw State University, Macon State College, Mercer University, Middle Georgia Technical College, University of Georgia, or Wesleyan College.
