The Waties Waring Scholarship

The Waties Waring Scholarship honors Julius Waties Waring, class of 1900. As a federal judge, Waring ended racial designations on juror lists and other traditionally accepted discriminatory practices within his court. In the 1950 Briggs vs. Elliott case, he became the first judge to contend from the bench that “segregation is per se inequality.” Waring’s dissent ultimately led to the landmark decision in the 1954 Brown vs. Board of Education case, which led to desegregation of public schools. The scholarship is given to Black, male students from South Carolina to attend the College of Charleston.
