To help deserving Williamson County students pursue undergraduate studies.

The Award:

The Williamson County Fair will award two (2) or more one (1) year scholarships, with the total monies not to exceed $4,000 (paid after the recipient satisfactorily completes his/her 1st college semester and obtains at least a 2.75 GPA), and will be paid directly to the college or institution of higher learning in which students are enrolled.

In memory and in honor of "Mr. Bill" Veevers, the Fair Board initiated an additional new scholarship in 2022 to be provided annually to the most outstanding applicant who exemplifies community service. Mr. Bill served as Facilities & Logistics Chair from its return in 2005 until his passing in October after the August, 2021 fair. This is a one (1) year scholarship of $2,500.

The W.C. Fair Board implemented a Scholarship Program in 2013, which was open to high school seniors and then current college freshmen. In 2014, and going forward, scholarships are available to existing high school seniors only. This program was established to show the youth of our county the value of being involved in their community. Providing scholarship funds as a token of appreciation for their involvement with the fair is one way we are able to acknowledge their service and show them how much they are appreciated by the Board. The Scholarship Committee received six (6) applications and unanimously agreed to award funding to each applicant for the 2013 inaugural process. $7,800 in scholarships were awarded to the Williamson County students. To date we have awarded 31 scholarships valuing $44,800.
