Description

The Carl Cowan Scholarships for Minority Students was made possible through initial donations and contributions from individuals and businesses after black students and faculty members in the early 1970’s sought to identify additional funding sources for black students.

The endowment was originally named the Minority Scholarship and Assistance Fund. In 1983, the name of the endowment was changed to the Carl Cowan Scholarship Endowment Fund. Carl Cowan was born in Knoxville in 1902, attended Knoxville College, and received a law degree from Howard University College of Law.

Mr. Cowan practiced law in Knox County from 1934 until 1980 and was appointed as the first African American Assistant District Attorney in Knox County in 1953.
