BRYAN-LANG FOUNDATION OFFERS RODNEY W. SHEFFIELD MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP
The Bryan-Lang Foundation, Inc. is offering an academic scholarship to a Camden County
student pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in history or a history-related field at a Georgia educational institution.
The RODNEY W. SHEFFIELD MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP will be given to a graduating high school senior and to a non-traditional college bound or currently enrolled college student. The applicant must be a Camden County resident and have a minimum 3.5 or above GPA.
Mr. Sheffield, a life-long resident and historian of Camden County, was actively involved in interpreting the history of the area. His passion was shared with many, and the Bryan-Lang Foundation is honoring his memory by awarding two $500 scholarships in a calendar. “What better way to honor Rodney Sheffield’s memory than with a scholarship,” said Eloise Thompson, chair of the Bryan-Lang Historical Archives Board of Directors. “He loved young people, he knew the importance of education, and his enthusiasm for history was limitless.”
Deadline for the scholarship awarded to a high school graduate must be postmarked April 23. The deadline for the scholarship awarded to a college student must be postmarked October 1. Complete guidelines and the application are available at the following:
- Camden County High School Guidance Department
- College of Coastal Georgia Financial Aid at both Brunswick and Kingsland locations
