The North Carolina Community Foundation has now opened its scholarship season to applicants, states Leslie Ann Jackson, NCCF director of grants and scholarships.

NCCF administers more than 150 scholarships for students throughout the state. Eligibility criteria and deadlines are specific and vary widely by scholarship and location. Deadlines typically range from March to May. To determine if you or your student qualifies, visit NCCF’s website at nccommunityfoundation.org/scholarships.

Jackson said that scholarships provide a good opportunity for North Carolina students to further their educations.

“Our aim is to raise awareness throughout the state about opportunities offered through scholarships held with the North Carolina Community Foundation,” she said. “We’re honored to steward these scholarships on behalf of our fund holders who are investing in the futures of these North Carolinians.” She noted that there are also some opportunities for adults to further their educations.
