About the Foundation

The mission and values of the James T. and Rose M. Perryman Family Foundation reflect those Mr. and Mrs. Perryman have shared with their children and grandchildren.

Mission: We are dedicated to rewarding hard-working students pursuing post-secondary education and who hope to apply their education to make a difference in the world.

Guiding Principles:

  • We encourage young people to consider science or mathematics as ways to do good while doing well.
  • We know that students who worked harder in school often find better solutions when tackling on-the-job problems later in life.
  • We understand the critical nature of family encouragement and support for success in education.
  • We recognize students who can articulate how scholarship support will help them to achieve their goals.
  • We look beyond grade point averages to reward motivation.
