Make a gift Joseph A. Vaughn Scholarship Fund

Support the Joseph Vaughn Scholarship Fund​

Established in 1991, the Joseph A. Vaughn Scholarship Fund honors the courage of Furman’s first African-American undergraduate student. The scholarship is given to a Furman student who demonstrates financial need, exemplifies high moral character, and shows academic promise. Priority is given to minority students possessing these qualities.

As an endowed scholarship fund, the fund has generated more than $5,000 for individual students. By supporting the fund, you can ensure that more students will receive support and honor the memory of a Furman pioneer.
