Applications are now being accepted from KC Old Boys attending college for the George Thompson Memorial Fund Awards for the 2013/14 academic year. The fund offers cash awards to KC Old Boys who are enrolled in an accredited college or university.

Awards are good for one year and typically granted for US$500 each. 
The George Thompson Memorial Scholarship Fund made five awards to KC Old Boys attending college during the 2012/2013 academic year.

The five recipients were:

Dwayne Powell 

 Dalton State College

Raheim Hedge-Murray

Strayer University

Jason Williams

Lemmar Wilson

Academy of Art University

Kemardo Tyrell 

 Notre Dame College of Ohio

The George Thompson Memorial Scholarship Fund was established by the Atlanta chapter of the Kingston College Old Boys’ Association in memory of the legendary and beloved Kingston College Old Boy and Jamaica National Football coach of the same name.

 The scholarship fund’s goal is to assist current students at Kingston College as well as Old Boys with their educational expenses. There are two components to the fund: the student awards and the Old Boys’ Scholarship.
The George Thompson scholarship fund also has a KC student component and recently made 10 scholarships available to students attending KC for the 2013/2014 academic year. These awards were presented at the recent scholarship awards ceremony held at the school.

Donation to the fund can be made online at   http://kctimes.org/donation.aspx.
