The North Carolina Community Foundation announces the opening of scholarship season, according to Leslie Ann Jackson, director of grants and scholarships.

NCCF administers more than 150 scholarships for students throughout the state. Eligibility criteria and deadlines are specific and vary widely by scholarship and location. Deadlines vary but typically range from March to May.

Jackson said that scholarships provide a good opportunity for North Carolina students to further their educations.

“Our aim is to raise awareness throughout the state about opportunities offered through scholarships held with the North Carolina Community Foundation,” she said. “We’re honored to facilitate scholarships on behalf of our fund holders who are investing in the next generation of North Carolinians.”
