Scholarship

The Glenn Burnett Scholarship

The Glenn Burnett Scholarship was established in the early 80’s. Since 1986 over $112,000 has been awarded to GPCA member’s children to support their attendance at a Georgia College or University.

Named after Glenn Burnett who dedicated more than 20 years of service to the association, the scholarship program has continued to grow in participation and funding through the years. Funded by the GPCA Charity Golf Tournament, the program is well established and an integral part of GPCA.

All Glenn Burnett Application‘s must be submitted by April 15, 2016.

The Russell Scholarship 

The Bob Russell Entomology Scholarship was established in 2005 to honor long-time member and dedicated leader Robert M. Russell. It was Mr. Russell’s vision in the 1980’s to seek an Urban Entomology Program at the University of Georgia. This scholarship honors his memory and will serve to encourage those students who seek to pursue
Entomology as a course of study.

The program is funded by the interest earned from a trust fund established by the Russell family and Bob’s friends who have contributed memorial gifts to honor him. Additionally, the GPCA Charity Golf Tournament contributes to the fund.

All Russell Application‘s must be submitted by June 1, 2016.
