The questions on the application are designed to gather information needed to match students to scholarships for which they might be eligible. To be considered for the maximum number of scholarships, students should review and answer the questions for general scholarships in addition to questions on dedicated pages associated with a major or specific awarding entity.

For questions, email scholarships or call (910) 962-3177.
