    The Lettie Pate Whitehead scholarship program provides scholarship grants for deserving female students with financial need at more than 200 colleges, universities and schools. More than 10,000 students receive scholarships each year. The foundation was created by Conkey Pate Whitehead, Mrs. Whitehead’s youngest son, in honor of his mother. It was chartered in 1946 for the “aid and benefit of poor and deserving Christian girls and women” in nine states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. The Foundation has awarded more than $767 million in grants since inception.

    “For many students, a college education is only attainable with the help of scholarships,” said Coker University President Dr. Natalie Harder. “Coker University is grateful to the Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation for its continued generous support of women from the southeastern United States.”
