Walter C. Bell, Jr. & Barbara Penninger Bell Scholarship

The donors are providing this fund to establish a scholarship for the benefit of the students of the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. Both Mr. & Mrs. Bell are alumni of the University, having graduated in 1965. Mr. Bell received a B.A. in History and Math. Mrs. Bell received a B.S. in Home Economics. As they have fond memories and feelings for the University and as they wish to give students the opportunity to attend the University, they have decided to establish this scholarship fund. The number of scholarships will be determined by interest available for award. The scholarship will cover the costs of, but not exceed, in-state tuition, fees, room and board. The scholarship shall be awarded to full-time undergraduates who are residents of North Carolina, Roanoke County, Virginia, or Salem, Virginia. The recipients must be in financial need and maintain a 3.0 GPA or better. The recipients shall be majoring in Mathematics, Computer Science, Biology or Physical Science. The scholarship is renewable based on maintenance of a 3.0 GPA or better and on available funds.
