Donald T. Warner Scholars Fund

This scholarship was established by a gift from The Public Welfare Foundation to honor Donald T. Warner, then CEO and director of the foundation. Mr. Warner was a trustee of Warren Wilson College from 1967 to 1989 and a Trustee Emeritus from 1989 until his death in 1995. He and his wife, Claudia E. Haines Warner, were major supporters of the College in the 1980’s and 1990’s, both personally and through their association with the Public Welfare Foundation. The Warner Merit Scholarship is granted to one or more entering freshmen chosen by the Office of Admission, based on their outstanding academic record during their secondary-school years. The recipient must maintain at least a 3.0 average at Warren Wilson in order to keep the scholarship.
