The Cherry Laurel Annual Scholarship

The Donors wish to recognize students who persevere, overcoming one or more significant personal obstacles during their first two years at UNCP. Inductees will not only receive scholarships, UNCP apparel, and recognition at the annual awards ceremony sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences; they will also have the opportunity to advise the UNCP administration on matters related to student success and mentor other UNCP students faced with obstacles. Inductees may receive the Cherry Laurel Scholarship and be eligible for renewable scholarships until the fourth year of their enrollment at UNCP. Each recipient of the Cherry Laurel Endowed Scholarship will be a full-time student in his or her sophomore or junior year and must maintain a minimum of a 2.0 GPA. There is no restriction of residency, and financial need is not a consideration. The scholarship is renewable until the recipient’s fourth year of enrollment at UNCP as long as the recipient continues to meet the aforementioned criteria.
