The prestigious D. Louise and Edward S. Young Endowed Scholarship by the Ashbrook Center is named in honor of Louise and Ed Young of York, Pennsylvania. The Young Scholarship provides recipients $5,000 annually and is renewable based on merit.
The Youngs endowed the scholarship to help support the efforts of the Ashbrook Center to educate future leaders about the country’s founding principles. Expressing gratitude for the abundant blessings this country has bestowed upon them, Ed Young explained that he and his wife of 70 years, wanted “to support the education of the next generation about what it means to be an American”. Young offered future scholarship recipients this advice: “keep the faith and stay the course set by the Founders”.
