Amy C. Venable Scholarship

Her mother encouraged her to “do something about it.” That “something” was Miss Venable’s creation of scholarships to help African America students attend Stuart Hall.

One or more students per year may receive this scholarship with a value up to $15,000.

Qualifications:

  • Must be accepted or currently enrolled at Stuart Hall School.
  • Must demonstrate financial need by applying at FACTS.
