Emma Kapp Ogburn Memorial Fund Winston-Salem Foundation


The Emma Kapp Ogburn Memorial Fund was established in September 1946 by S.C. Ogburn as a memorial to his beloved wife, Mrs. Emma Kapp Ogburn. The scholarship funds are intended to provide scholarships to Forsyth County residents of the Methodist denomination who plan on pursuing an education for the Methodist ministry.
The Emma Kapp Ogburn Memorial Fund is administered by The Winston-Salem Foundation. As the funds grow, the number and dollar amount of scholarships awarded each year may also increase.

The Winston-Salem Foundation

Note: Make sure that you answered all the required information; incomplete applications will not be evaluated by the selection committee.

Selection Process:

The scholarship selection committee will be responsible for choosing the award recipients. A member of the committee will advise The Winston-Salem Foundation of the recipient’s name, address, contact number, and school of choice so he/she can be notified.

Award Disbursement:

Once the award recipient(s) have been selected, checks will be jointly issued by the Foundation to the college of the recipient’s choice and to the recipient. Unlike most awards, the checks will be mailed to the recipient’s home address for him or her to deliver to his/her college. Separate checks will be issued by the Foundation for fall and spring semester. Checks usually take approximately two (2) weeks to process. The funds may be used to pay for the cost of tuition, fees, room and board, and other academic expenses.
