Scholarship Overview

These scholarships are for high school seniors who live in one of the following western North Carolina counties: Avery, Buncombe, Burke, Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Haywood, Henderson, Jackson, Macon, Madison, McDowell, Mitchell, Polk, Rutherford, Swain, Transylvania, or Yancey. To qualify for these scholarships, applicants must attend a WNC public high school, the NC School of Science and Mathematics, the UNC School of the Arts, or a WNC home school registered with the North Carolina Department of Non-Public Education. Applicants must have proven academic ability/achievement; demonstrated financial need; involvement in community service, extracurricular activities, and/or work experience; and strong moral character. One semifinalist from each high school will be selected (homeschooled students will be considered collectively as one school) to receive a nonrenewable $1,000 award. From the semifinalists, up to eight finalists will be selected to receive a renewable scholarship of $1,250 to $5,000 per year. Finalist awards will replace, not supplement, the $1,000 semifinalist award.
