Audra Nicole Oliver Scholarship

Our first scholarship program started in 2002 with the loss of Audra Nicole Oliver to sickle cell disease.

In her life, she taught people about the joys of faith and perseverance in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles. The award of this scholarship to a senior youth leader honors students who demonstrate these qualities through service in schools and communities.

The successful applicant will receive a $500 Scholarship amount to further his or her post-secondary education. The scholarship award will be presented during the senior honor’s night at the high school which the recipient attends. The scholarship amount will be paid directly to the post-secondary institution once the recipient is enrolled.

Those wishing to make a tax-deductible donation to the fund in Audra’s memory may do so by making a check payable to AVPRIDE and mailing to:


Audra Nicole Oliver Memorial Scholarship Fund

Fayetteville, GA 30214
