Every year, the Carson Scholars Fund receives applications from bright, talented, and dedicated students throughout the nation. Applicants are nominated by their school based on their high academic achievement and commitment to their communities. Each year, we are continually impressed by the quality of applications we receive. The 2017 class of Carson Scholars standout even more. Their compassion for others, dedication to making a difference, and vision for the future is inspiring. Exhibiting self-reflection and perseverance, these scholars represent our future leaders.
The Carson Scholars Fund is excited to announce that 483 of the best and brightest academic superstars from across the country have been named Carson Scholars. With this honor, these students will receive a $1,000 college scholarship and recognition package.
Also this year, 872 previous scholarship winners have achieved recognition status. These previous scholars have continued to meet the high standards of the Carson Scholars Fund. They show year-after-year, their leadership both in the classroom and in the community.
To celebrate all of the 1,335 Carson Scholars this year, we will be holding eight regional awards banquets. If you are interested in attending one of these events, please visit our Event Tickets page. If you are interested in sponsoring an event, please visit our Event Sponsorship page.
