Robeson County Alumni Annual Scholarship*

The donors strongly believe in the quality of education that The University of North Carolina at Pembroke provides its students. Therefore, members of the Robeson Alumni Chapter have joined together to create an award that will provide financial assistance to a student in pursuit of a higher education degree.

This endowment is designed to assist a student from Robeson County whose immediate family member is an alumnus/a of The University of North Carolina at Pembroke. Immediate family member shall be defined as father, mother, grandparent, or a relative providing proof of legal guardianship. A minimum 2.5 QPA is required with the candidate enrolled as a full-time undergraduate student in the sophomore, junior, or senior year of study. There is no required field of study.

The award shall be provided on a yearly basis in two equal sums, half in the fall and half in the spring. The award is renewable if funds are available. The recipient shall be selected by the University Scholarship Selection Committee.

UNCP AFROTC Alumni Endowed Scholarship (Not to be awarded until fully endowed)

The Donors have established the University of North Carolina Pembroke Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corp (UNCP AFROTC) alumni Scholarship to recognize the contributions made by the program on the lives of graduates in both their public and private career development.  The UNCP AFROTC program has proven to be a catalyst for the successful development of men and women contributing greatly to the successes as military leaders, corporate professionals and civic mentors, and as a result, this scholarship will help to provide similar opportunities for future program graduates. It is the belief of the Donors that without the program in place at the university to provide the discipline to stay academically eligible, that they may not have completed the rigors of a undergraduate education.

The recipient of the UNCP AFROTC Alumni Endowed Scholarship will be a full-time undergraduate AFROTC Cadet. The recipient will have a minimum 2.5 GPA (high school GPA unweighted). Preference will be given to members of the program with demonstrated financial need, although not required, as determined by the university Office of Financial Aid.
