This $4,000 scholarship was established in 1986 in honor of Thomas Marcellus Taylor (1946 - 1969).  Shortly after graduation from Newberry College, Mark died in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War.  This scholarship can be awarded each year to an incoming freshman.  The student must have graduated from one of the accredited high schools in Newberry County (Mid Carolina High, Newberry High, Newberry Academy, or Whitmire High). 

The recipient must have been in the top 1/3 of his/her graduating class.  The funds will be paid at the rate of $1,000 per year provided that the student maintains a GPR of 2.0.  The total payment for any one student can not exceed $4,000.  The selection is made by the staff at Newberry College.  All applications should be submitted directly to Newberry College.  Transcripts are required before funds are released.
