For scholarship recipients
Congratulations on receiving a scholarship through the NCCF! We commend you for your outstanding achievements and your commitment to your education. Please read this information carefully, as it will answer many of the questions you may have.
In order for us to send your check, you will need to complete the online scholar information form using the login information we mailed to you. Once this is complete, scholarship funds will be sent directly to your college or university.
Scholar information form
Once you've received your login information from our office, you'll use it to complete this form to accept your scholarship. You'll be asked to answer the questions listed below. You might find it helpful to take a moment to compose your responses and perhaps save them in a separate document before logging in.
- What are your main interests, academically and otherwise, and how are these interests reflected in your educational goals?
- Why did you choose your college or university, and what do you most look forward to about attending this institution?
- What significant experiences or challenges in your life have influenced your future plans?
- How do you intend to honor your selection as a scholarship award recipient, both as a student and upon 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 Brittaney Rea, grants and scholarships specialist, using the subject “Thank You.” Or, you may mail information to her attention at our Raleigh address at the bottom of the screen.
