About the Scholarship

The Watson-Reese Briarfield Scholarship was established by the Tressel and Stephens families along with Ed and Diane Reese to honor the late Frank and Norma Watson, and the care they received while residents at Briarfield Manor.

The Watsons were longtime supporters of Youngstown State University and have made several significant contributions over the years. Their daughters, Janet Stephens and Ellen Tressel are also graduates of YSU.

Recipients will be selected by the Briarfield scholarship committee and the YSU Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships in conjunction with the YSU Foundation. The scholarship amount and number of awards available will vary.
