For more than 35 years, the Watson Land Company College Scholarship has helped to advance both the communities and lives of the individual residents of the cities where we have a business presence. The $10,000 scholarship—a $2,500 annual grant renewable over four years—recognizes graduates who demonstrate academic excellence, are involved in their community and are in need of financial aid.


“This money will be essential in furthering my education. I know that this scholarship will allow me to finish college and eventually go on to medical school and become a pediatrician…I’m honored to know that I have an array of people who are willing to encourage me to reach for the stars and continue on my educational journey.” — Lauryn Hudson, Watson Land Company Scholarship Recipient


As a member of the Southern California business community, Watson Land Company is proud of its tradition of recognizing and assisting exemplary scholars to pursue their higher educational and career goals.
