Earl H. Mayne International Scholarship

The Mayne Educational Fund was the dream of a boy who struggled for his own education and resolved in so doing that, if he ever could, he would help other young people along the same paths. Dr. Earl Mayne founded The Mayne Educational Fund in 1944. Mr. Clayton Griswold, a Presbyterian minister and administrator of the fund, became friends with Arthur Bannerman, the president of Warren Wilson College, in the early 1960’s. As a result, the Fund began contributing to the College in support of international students. That support continued on an annual basis until 1994, when the Mayne Educational Fund was dissolved. At that time, the Griswold family decided that the remaining capital in the fund should be transferred to Warren Wilson College to establish the Earl H. Mayne Scholarships for International Students. Today the earnings from this fund continue to support deserving international students with demonstrated financial need.
