Lettie Pate Whitehead Scholarship Program

The Foundation’s scholarship program awards annual grants for the education of deserving female students with financial need at more than 200 accredited educational institutions in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

Most of the scholarship grants support undergraduate higher education, though the Foundation maintains a special interest in health education. A significant number of our grants target education in the medical, nursing and allied health fields. In accordance with the will that established the Foundation, grantee institutions use Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation grants to award need-based scholarships to Christian women who live in one of the specified states. More than 10,000 students receive scholarships each year in individual amounts determined by their respective institutions.

Scholarship applicants should contact their institution for information on how to apply. The Foundation does not award scholarships directly to individuals. Please see below for a list of institutions that participate in our scholarship program. Note the Foundation rarely adds new institutions to this program. For more information, contact Carrie Conway at conway@woodruff.org.
