Annual Scholarship Fund
Playing Grownup exists to equip students for life after college. We strive to achieve this through seminars as well as an annual scholarship. We invite you to learn more about our scholarships, the great men who inspired them, review previous winners, and apply for this year's scholarship (if you have attended a seminar and are a college senior!) all on this page. It is our honor to serve you and we look forward to reviewing this year's applicants!
HC Williamson Scholarship
The HC Williamson Scholarship is named after the late Mr. Williamson "Papaw," grandfather of Playing Grownup co-founder Amy Thomas. Papaw was larger than life as he enjoyed working on his farm in Southwest Virginia pictured above. He donated his time to the local community by faithfully serving on boards for businesses and churches.
HC Thomas Scholarship
The HC Thomas Scholarship is named after the late Mr. Thomas, grandfather of co-founder Justin Thomas. He enjoyed significant success as a furniture business entrepreneur and as an investor with a gift for picking stock investments. His hard-working personality was matched only by his generosity, love, and card playing skills.
