Aura Neely-Gary Memorial Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $2,000
Awards Available: 1

The Aura Neely-Gary Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 2007 in memory of Mrs. Gary by her family. Mrs. Gary’s strong commitment to education and self-improvement was the impetus for her family’s desire to establish this scholarship in her honor.

Mrs. Gary, a Jackson resident and member of Anderson United Methodist Church, was always active in her community. She was a graduate of Jackson State University where she was employed as a counselor in the office of the Dean of Students. She loved working with and training young people.

The family wanted to honor her memory by providing a college scholarship to those whose secondary school education may have been interrupted for various reasons or those who require assistance to continue their education. The fund awards one or more scholarships annually in the amount of $2,000 depending on the number of deserving applicants.

Eligibility

The Aura Neely-Gary Memorial Scholarship provides an annual scholarship based on both merit and need to a male or female student planning to enter a college or university in Mississippi.

Preference will be given to students who desire to resume their education following a period of personal difficulties. Special consideration will be given for young women who have previously dropped out of school and are now enrolled at a post-secondary institution.

The applicant must demonstrate his or her potential contribution to society based on application materials presented. Demonstrated financial need must be provided via the student’s university or college financial aid office.
