The R. A. Bowen Trust was established by R. A. Bowen in 1943 for the purpose of assisting capable and deserving students to attend college. Scholarships are granted to qualified students for the purpose of attending an accredited college or university full time.  Scholarships are granted for a period of one academic year and may be renewed for one or more additional years, up to a maximum of four years.  Scholarships are granted to undergraduate students only.

The R. A. Bowen Trust scholarship is an award for up to $2,000.00 per academic year, payable to the college or university in equal payments for the Fall and Spring semester.

Scholarships are granted without subsequent obligation of the student to The R. A. Bowen Trust; however, when their circumstances permit, former recipients and others are urged to make contributions to The R. A. Bowen Trust for use in granting additional scholarships.

Who Is Eligible?

Applications for scholarships are considered if the students are, or will be, full time undergraduate students at an accredited four year college or university program who either:

 1.  Are from the Macon, Georgia area (specifically Bibb County, Crawford County, Houston County, Jones County, Monroe County, Peach County, or Twiggs County)


2.  Plan to attend college in Macon, Georgia at Wesleyan College or Mercer University.
