Golden LEAF Scholarship Program
County of Applicant:

This grant will provide funding to NCSEAA to continue the Golden LEAF Scholars program. This grant will support annual scholarships of $3,000 ($12,000 over four years) to 215 new recipients and 552 renewal scholars, and 15 scholarships of $1,500 to scholars enrolled in the Regionally Increasing Baccalaureate Nurses (RIBN) program. Scholarships may also provide up to four years of support for students enrolled in combined degree programs in which a student receives both a baccalaureate degree and a graduate degree. Scholarship recipients must demonstrate financial need and be from a rural county that is economically distressed or tobacco dependent. NCSEAA advertises the program, receives and reviews the applications, selects the scholars, verifies eligibility and enrollment, and makes payment to schools. Recipients can be high school seniors or community college transfer students. The scholarship application process assesses the scholars’ connection to rural North Carolina with the hope of identifying students that are more likely to return to rural areas of the state after graduation. Scholars may use the funds to attend an eligible public or private non-profit four-year school in North Carolina.
