Scholarship and Award Programs
Merit / Special Distinction / Need-based Scholarships / Grants / Awards
Since its inception in 1956, North Carolina is proud of its heritage in supporting students in their quest for success in higher education. This legacy of assistance still continues today.
Currently the John & Charles Wesley Heritage Scholarship, Trustee Scholarship, and Valedictorian/Salutatorian Scholarship have all been secured and are no longer being offered for the 2015-2016 school year.
We are still awarding the President's, Dean's, and Wesleyan awards and encourage students to complete an application and FAFSA to receive a total aid package.
