Becky B. Bullard Scholarship

The Donor wishes to establish an award which will assert her belief in the enduring value of education, and at the same time honor the memory of her late husband, Clifford Bullard, who shared her belief in the life-affirming usefulness and worth of a college education. This endowed scholarship is meant to encourage a young man or woman who has the desire to attain an education to make that goal a reality. The donor believes that education is a means of broadening one’s horizons, not only in the pursuit of a career but also in the quest for a future that is open to the many possibilities that come with a good educational foundation. Candidates for award of this scholarship shall be full-time undergraduate students entering their freshman year of study at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke or transfer students coming to UNCP to complete their course of study. The candidate must have graduated from a high school in Anson or Union counties in North Carolina and must meet UNCP admission standards. There is no preference of subject major, and the candidate does not have to be of demonstrated financial need. The award is renewable to the candidate for four years of study at UNCP, or, if eligibility by virtue of a 2.5 average is not maintained, can be re-awarded to a student whose high-school career was in Anson or Union counties.
