Mary & Joseph Bryan Scholarship

T.J. Bryan

Mary and Joseph Bryan are the deceased parents of former Chancellor T. J. Bryan, Fayetteville State University's tenth Chancellor, FSU's first woman Chancellor, and the University of North Carolina's first African-American woman Chancellor.  The couple was married in 1942 and had six daughters.  Although neither completed high school, they taught their daughters the importance of self-reliance and endurance.

The Mary and Joseph Bryan scholarship is awarded to a nursing student in honor of Mary's lifelong desire to become a nurse.
