Wallace Watson Indian Scholarship

The Wallace Watson Indian Scholarship


The Wallace Watson Scholar is a girl whose education is funded by Wallace’s family. She is selected from the community of Mankotta Island, Kerala, India by Jai and Laila Chacko and their daughter Xan. The purpose of the scholarship is to encourage and enable the education of a girl who would benefit substantially, who is bright and whose parents would not be able to afford it themselves.

The current scholar is Arya Bhuvaneswar.

By happy coincidence she was a baby when Wallace was at Mankotta in the summer of 2000 when he had met her and her family. Indeed, it was the Bhuvaneswar family house that he, with six other Radley boys, helped build that summer.
