Alumni establish Scott and Tammy Cowan Scholarship Endowment for APSU students

Clarksville, Tennessee – Austin Peak State University alumni Scott Kwan (91) and Tami Kwan (92) recently made a generous donation to establish the Scott and Tammy Kwan Scholarship for APSU Students.

To be eligible, students must be juniors or seniors at APSU with an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher. Applicants must have also graduated from a Hopkinsville high school or attended Hopkinsville Community College. Preference will be given to business majors. This scholarship is renewable. It will be awarded for the first time during the 2022-2023 academic year.

During his time as an undergraduate, Scott served as President of the APSU Student Government Association (SGA). He met Tammy when they were both auditorium managers at APSU residences. Scott graduated in 1991 with a BA in Business Administration. The following year, Tammy received her bachelor’s degree in public administration from APSU. The couple now lives in Hopkinsville, where they both participate in the Rotary Club of Hopkinsville and the Rotary Scholars Program. Their daughter, Lauren Cowan, is currently a final year student at APSU and will graduate with a bachelor’s degree in May 2022.

With this new scholarship, Scott and Tami hope to provide financial assistance to students to help them complete the final requirements they need to graduate and start successful future careers.

“Not only are Scott and Tami Cowan longtime supporters of Austin Bay, but they are also my former classmates and friends,” said Chris Phillips, APSU Vice President for Undergraduate Advancement. “They have given back to their home university through contributions to various scholarships, Govs annual online fundraising campaign and APSU School of Business. Now, through their scholarship, they are expanding their commitment to student success, and we are grateful for their investment.”

Endowments are permanently restricted funds managed by the Austin Bay State University Foundation. The amount of each scholarship may vary and will be determined based on the endowment value and the institution’s spending plan.
