The Charles Evans Scholarship is one of the General Study Scholarships offered. It was established in 2009 through an endowment from The Charles Evans Foundation. The scholarship is named in memory of Charles Evans, founder of Evan-Picone fashion house, a U.S. veteran, an entrepreneur, and a lifelong philanthropist. There are no additional requirements to apply for the Charles Evans Scholarship, as it is a General Study Scholarship.
