This scholarship was established in memory of Reverend George T. Welsch, rector of Christ Episcopal Church in Big Stone Gap from 1942 to 1958. An important goal of Mr. Welsch’s ministry in Southwestern Virginia was encouraging students to attend college and supporting them in the pursuit of their studies. His family created this scholarship in his memory to continue his work in assisting students at UVA and is awarded to students from Southwest Virginia, specifically from Wise, Lee and Dickinson counties. Financial need is considered.
