The COVID-19 pandemic has been an extremely unique and life-altering period of time for everyone.
Whether you contracted the virus or not, the pandemic, quarantine, and other guidelines surrounding the entire ordeal have changed everyone’s lives, who they are today, and how we will operate as a society in the future.
Many different realms of our lives, for better or for worse, will be significantly influenced by the pandemic and the devastating impact it’s had on people across the country.
The COVID-19 Perspective Scholarship exists to allow students to fully reflect on and unpack the many implications of a global pandemic. All high school seniors in North Carolina are eligible to apply for this scholarship.
To apply, please address how society will change in regards to any area of life such as healthcare, technology, transportation, social interactions, education, or any other aspect of life you can think of.

The winner will be publicly announced on May 15, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
