Since 1987, we have raised more than $800,000 to help students attend college. This year a total of $66,000 -- $15,000 more than last year -- will be distributed equally among the schools. Which means we can help even more students afford college!

More than 500 students have been able to attend college in Brevard and all over the country because of the generosity of our community.

Students are selected for scholarship funds based on academic merit and financial need.

Scholarship-Program-Students-ConnesteeFalls-Brevard-NC The selection process is organized by the staff of the Transylvania County Public School System, Brevard College, and Blue Ridge Community College. Our Program participates in the selection of the high school students. The two colleges make awards through their own selection process
