Western North Carolina high school seniors and community college transfer students are invited to apply for the Golden LEAF Scholarship Program.
Applications for the 2020-21 academic year are available now, and the deadline to apply is March 1, N.C. Sen. Chuck Edwards (R-Henderson) said in a news release.
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.
The program’s goal is to help rural students build their knowledge and skills, with the hope that these students will return to live and work in rural communities.
