John Percy “Dee” Bethel Legacy Scholarship

This scholarship is established to honor John Percy “Dee” Bethel whose commitment to education and personal sacrifices enabled his daughters, Shelease Bethel-Valentine and Letitia Bethel-White to both attend Bethune Cookman – University and graduate with no student loan debt. A voracious reader and great debater, Mr. Bethel instilled the importance of reading to his children. This scholarship is for a current international student attending Bethune Cookman University.  The award is based on demonstrated financial need, community service and student involvement.   Donors giving to this scholarship will receive a tax donation letter at the end of the year.

We are currently not accepting applications.
