Junior Seahawk Academy Receives Grant from the Biogen Foundation

The Watson College is pleased to announce that the 2017 Junior Seahawk Academy has received a $4,500 "Ignite the Power of STEM" grant from the Biogen Foundation. The funds will be used to expand field experiences and project-based learning for middle school students who attend the educational summer day program.

The Biogen Foundation's "Ignite the Power of STEM" program awards grants to support science education programs and projects that expand and enhance science education at the elementary, middle and/or high school levels. The program is administered by the North Carolina Community Foundation.


Middle School Enrichment Scholarship

The North Carolina Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NCASFAA) awards scholarships to encourage disadvantaged middle school students to begin considering attending college after finishing high school by providing tuition to a summer enrichment program at a North Carolina college or university. Each student will be matched with a mentor to assist them with selecting a program and requesting funds from NCASFAA. Visit their website for more information >
