The Maury Foundation exists because of generous donors who have supported the work of the foundation since its founding in 1986.

Each year applicants are chosen based on a 300-word essay, their academic transcript, and a letter of recommendation. Applicants must plan to attend an accredited institution of higher learning immediately following graduation, be designated as an honor graduate, and have made a positive contribution to their school and community life.


In 2014, The Maury Foundation received an endowment from the family of Oscar B. “O.B” Ferebee, Jr., Class of 1936. When Mr. Ferebee passed away in 2010, his wife Sandra wanted to celebrate his memory.  O.B. always spoke fondly of his time at Maury High School.  Mrs. Ferebee felt a scholarship in his name for a deserving senior was best.  The Maury Foundation is proud to announce the “Oscar B. Ferebee, Jr.” Endowed Scholarship

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to directly impact the lives of current and future Maury alumni.
