The Lauren Cowart Memorial Scholarship
The committee for The Lauren Cowart Memorial Scholarship announces a call for applicants for the scholarship’s third annual scholarship award. The $1,000 scholarship is awarded to a student majoring in Advertising, Marketing, Graphic Design or Public Relations in the Augusta area.
Lauren Cowart was a talented designer and a steadfast teammate to her coworkers at Wier / Stewart. Tragically, her life was cut short in a tragic boating incident that also took the life of her five year old daughter, Blakely. Lauren was a loving daughter and mother, as well as a caring friend to many. Lauren was heavily involved in the local chapter of the American Advertising Federation and particularly loved the American Advertising Awards.
The 2023 Scholarship will be awarded in the Spring of 2023 to the applicant whose professionalism, enthusiasm and work best represent Lauren’s steadfastness, zest for life and impeccable spirit.
