James E. Preston Community
As a tribute to former Chairman and CEO James E. Preston, this scholarship was established in 1999. Preston, a champion of community involvement and volunteerism, gave generously to numerous nonprofit organizations during his 35-year career at Avon. This scholarship is awarded to the son or daughter of an Avon Associate who meets the selection criteria for the Scholarship Program for Children of Associates and also demonstrates community service experience that is deemed most exemplary. One scholarship in the amount of $20,000 will be paid in annual installments of $5,000 over a four-year period.
For complete details and application forms for all scholarships, please contact us.
