Education and Professional Educator Support

In addition to supporting our Charitable Partners, RWC’s yearly fundraising effort also provides scholarships for a number of high school seniors and non-traditional students, as well as project funding grants for professional educators. The RWC is proud to have awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars of scholarships over the years to qualifying students.

Education Scholarships are awarded to graduating high school seniors and non-traditional students to help further their education. The scholarships are based on financial need, outstanding academic records and community service.

The RWC also recognizes one outstanding young woman with the “Tillie Wood Award” established in memory of Tillie Wood, a dedicated life-long member of the RWC, major contributor to the Roswell community and mother of Roswell Mayor Jere Wood.

Professional Educator Grants are awarded based upon a number of criteria including need, purpose, intended impact of the funding, and availability of (or lack of) state and/or local government funding.

Education Scholarships are awarded to students representing a number of public and private high schools in Roswell, Milton, Alpharetta, Duluth, Canton, and East Cobb. Our non-traditional student recipients are typically adults wishing to continue their education due to interruption of their studies or unique circumstances. Professional Educator Grants are awarded to teachers at all levels of education, from pre-K through high school.
