Ann & Girard Tillery Scholarship

Administering Organization: Triangle Community Foundation

Applications for this scholarship will ONLY be accepted in 2019. This scholarship will make one round of awards in spring 2019.



When Ann and Girard Tillery revised their wills, they discussed how to give back to the communit. Both of their mothers were educators, Ann’s a kindergarten and first grade teacher and Girard’s an extension agent for Auburn University. Understanding the profound impact of a good education on one’s success in life, the Tillerys agreed that providing educational assistance would be their goal. This scholarship, created after Girard’s untimely death in 2010, will focus on providing opportunities for individuals with financial need to empower themselves through higher education.
