Scholarship information and application are available at CFNC.org/goldenleaf.

This year, the Golden LEAF Scholarship program will allow 215 rural high school seniors and North Carolina community college transfer students to receive scholarship funding to attend a participating four-year in-state college or university of their choice for the 2020-21 school year.
