Caton Family Endowed Scholarship

The scholarship is to be given annually to a student who resides in Robeson County, intends to major in education, and was a Regional Finalist for the NC Teaching Fellows Program with UNCP listed as a 1-5 choice. The hope is that one of the many students who did not receive the NC Teaching Fellows Scholarship, but who nonetheless has excellent qualifications, may have a real need for this scholarship. The donor would like the Director of Teacher Recruitment and/or Teaching Fellows Program Director to bear the following criteria in mind when selecting the recipient (though not all of these attributes need to be present in every recipient; the Director may use his or her judgment): The recipient might be the child of blue collar parents, and may not always have been an exceptional student. The recipient should be in need of financial assistance. The award may be renewed as long as the recipient continues as an education major.
