For scholarship recipients
Congratulations on receiving a scholarship through the NCCF! We commend you for your outstanding achievements and your commitment to your education.
All scholarship funds will be sent directly to your college or university. In order for us to send your check, you will need to respond to the online scholar information form using the login information we mailed to you.
Scholar information form
Once you've received your letter from our office, you'll need to login to this form to accept your scholarship.
On this page, you'll be asked to answer the following questions. You might find it helpful take a moment to compose your responses before logging in to the form.
- What are your main interests, academic and otherwise? (What is your intended major, and what were your extracurricular activities?) Why do these interest you?
- Why do you think you were selected for this scholarship? What does this scholarship mean to you?
- What significant experiences have shaped your plans for the future? Have you had to overcome any challenges to further your education?
- Why did you choose your college or university? What do you hope to do after graduation?
Thanking your donor
Each scholarship fund held by the North Carolina Community Foundation was established by an individual donor or organization to benefit students like you, and they appreciate hearing how their generosity is making a difference. We will share your name, hometown and schools as well as your answers to the questions above with your scholarship donors.
If you would like to send an additional thank-you letter or recent photograph to the NCCF, we would be happy to share these with your scholarship donor. You may submit these items by email to firstname.lastname@example.org (please use the subject “Scholar Info”) or by mail to our Raleigh address at the bottom of the screen.
