James Porter Mathematics and Environmental Sciences Scholarship

The Donor wishes to recognize her father, whose guidance and example made a profound difference in the course her life has taken. James Porter’s belief in the power of education influenced his daughter’s decision to pursue advanced degrees, and ultimately played a huge role in her success. Equally important was this father’s impact on the way his daughter attempts to live her life: with spirit, passion, perspective, and a love of God, life, family, and community. The recipients of this scholarship will be students who have declared a major in mathematics, computer science, environmental science, the life sciences, or other related disciplines as they may be established at UNCP; maintain a minimum of 2.5 GPA; have demonstrated financial need; a preference should be shown for Native American students. The award is renewable.
