Since the Foundation’s student aid program began in 1923, generous donors have connected with promising students to invest in their shared value of education.
We manage over 125 scholarship funds to support students from Forsyth, Davidson, Davie, Stokes, Surry, Wilkes, and Yadkin Counties. Scholarships are available in a wide range of areas, helping pave the way to higher education for over 500 students each year.

Most of our scholarships are accessed through a One-Stop Scholarship Application. This means that you will be automatically considered for the scholarships for which you are eligible—with just one application. You’ll need to complete the application in full and provide supplemental materials. We’ll take it from there!
Here’s how the process works:
In addition to our One-Stop Scholarships, we also have scholarships with outside selection processes. These opportunities will not be identified by the One-Stop Scholarship Application, and you must contact each scholarship committee or guidance office individually to inquire about their application process and deadlines.
Did you receive a scholarship from the Foundation in the past and want to report back on your college successes or tell us your story?
