Dr. and Mrs. T. Walter Brashier of Travelers Rest have gifted $1 million to North Greenville University to support scholarships for the graduate school. 

The Timothy Brashier Graduate Scholars program will provide scholarships to residents of Greenville County or previous graduates of NGU pursuing post-baccalaureate programs in business, education, and ministry.  

The Brashier gift will be available immediately for cash scholarships to assist with fall 2017 enrollment.

“This is a major act of generosity that can impact the university’s budget positively for the current year to help us spur graduate enrollment,” said President Dr. Gene Fant Jr. “We all know that scholarships make it possible for students to attend college and assist working adults in continuing their education. This is our hope with the Martin Timothy Brashier Graduate Scholars program.”

To receive the scholarship, a student must be a resident of Greenville County or graduate of NGU, a first-time graduate student, must have applied and been accepted to a master’s program in business, education, or ministry at NGU, and must maintain a 3.0 GPA.  

The Martin Timothy Brashier Graduate Scholars program is named in memory of the Brashier’s son who passed away in September 2012.

Tim was a 1976 North Greenville alumnus and was active in the family businesses, developing residential real estate and running an aviation servicing company. His parents remember him as someone with a great sense of humor and a friendly person who had many friends. He loved God, his church (Berea First Baptist Church), his family, and was a favorite uncle to many nieces and nephews. Tim, however, was most notably known for his giving heart.

NGU’s graduate school is accepting admission applications for two fall terms beginning August 7 and October 9. Scholarship applications are due July 31 for Fall 1 and September 30 for Fall 2.
