Bob Caton Endowed Scholarship for Football and Men's Basketball

The Donor wishes to establish this scholarship with the belief these athletes will use their collegiate experience as a time of growth in character and maturity. Through positive decision making and the building of character, the Donor hopes the recipients will better themselves as athletes and young professionals. Upon graduation, the Donor trusts the recipients will be prepared to face the personal and professional challenges of the real world using the skills learned in the academic and athletic arenas. The recipients of this scholarship shall be incoming freshman on the UNCP football team or UNCP men’s basketball team, registered full-time, and who maintain the University’s minimum QPA for the fall and spring semester. The candidate should be of good character with an attitude and willingness to perform well while attending UNCP. There is no restriction of major or residency. The award should be split each year between a football athlete and a men’s basketball athlete. The award is renewable to the student athlete from each sport provided the qualifications are met each academic year. The awards will be renewed through graduation by the student athlete or exhaustion of their athletic eligibility, whichever comes first. The award is received half in the fall and half in the spring, and is based on demonstrated financial need.
