Dr. Carl M. Fisher Memorial Scholarship

The Donors wish to honor their husband and father, Dr. Carl M. Fisher, who died March 30, 2006, after 37 years of service to The University of North Carolina at Pembroke, by establishing this scholarship in his memory. Dr. Fisher was employed at UNCP from 1967 until his retirement in 1994. While at UNCP he worked as a professor in the Education Department and an administrator. One of his greatest aspirations was to teach in a way that would encourage students to want to continue their education. Therefore, this scholarship is being established to help a deserving student in the School of Education achieve her or his ultimate goal of an undergraduate or graduate degree at UNC Pembroke. The recipients of the Dr. Carl M. Fisher Memorial Scholarship must have a declared major in Education and maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA. Recipients may be either part- or full-time undergraduate students in their junior or senior year of study or graduate students. There is no restriction of residency or financial need. The award is renewable if funds are available.
