J and B Friendship Merit Scholarship
Established in 2002 by an anonymous donor, this scholarship provides assistance to worthy Franklin College students by encouraging academic excellence as well as leadership in Franklin College-related activities outside the classroom.
The J&B Friendship Endowed Scholarship will be awarded with first preference to a graduate of Grundy High School in Grundy, Virginia, who meets the following criteria: is a residential student (i.e. lives on campus) and must have graduated in the top 10 percent of his or her high school class and must demonstrate leadership in two extra-curricular activities including, but not limited to, the fine arts, athletics, student government and/or community service clubs. If no appropriate candidate is identified or if endowment earnings exceed one full-tuition award, scholarships of at least $2,500 may be extended to students who meet the same criteria.
