Judson L. Brown Scholarship

This scholarship is named in honor of the late Tlingit leader Judson Lawrence Brown. The Judson L. Brown Scholarship award comes from an endowment established in 2006 through a $100,000 donation from Chris and Mary McNeil. It was named for Chris McNeil's uncle, Judson L. Brown, who was a forceful advocate for education and leadership development.

The Judson L. Brown Scholarship endowment, awards $5,000 annually to a shareholder or shareholder descendant who demonstrates outstanding academic performance and leadership. Each year, Sealaska Heritage Institute selects a recipient from the pool of submitted scholarship applications, on behalf of the family.
