Everyone deserves the chance to obtain a high-quality education, but unfortunately for many students, money is a limiting factor.
Even though financial aid is awarded to 86% of first-year, full-time students, many students still have to go out of pocket or apply for loans to pay for their education, which can make their financial troubles increase drastically.
As a small solution to the $1.8 trillion dollar student debt crisis, the Charles R. Ullman & Associates Educational Support Scholarship is open to all students based in North Carolina in any field of study.
To apply, please write about why you think it’s important for people to engage with their communities, ways in which you’ve helped your own community, and how you hope to continue providing for your community through your career.
The first-place winner of the scholarship will receive a $2,000 award, the runner-up will receive a $1,000 award, and the second runner-up will receive $500
Why do you think it is important for people to be involved in their communities? How have you helped your own community in your life so far? How do you plan to help your community through your future career?
