Current/Previous Carson Scholars are defined as students in grades 5-12 who have previously been awarded a Carson Scholarship. If you are out of high school, please visit our alumni page for information about scholarship payouts, staying in touch and other opportunities and programs for alumni.
2014 Previous Scholar Recognition
Previous Scholar Recognition is an elite honor that affirms the prestigious status of Carson Scholars in their pursuit of academic and career goals. Scholars meeting the application requirements will be honored with a special recognition package consisting of notification of their scholar status renewal, a commemorative pin to attach to the ribbon of their original medal, and a certificate of achievement. Schools will be sent notification of the scholar's renewed status and will continue to receive a trophy (or nameplate) to recognize the scholars who have been honored with a recognition package each year. We will also make every effort to invite previous scholars to an awards banquet. There is no monetary award connected with Previous Scholar Recognition.
The deadline for completing your 2014 Carson Scholar Recognition application is 5:00 p.m eastern standard time on Friday, January 10, 2014. Your principal will have until 5:00 p.m. eastern standard time on Friday, January 17, 2014 to verify your application. Please make sure your principal is aware of this requirement. Your application is not considered complete until after it has been verified.
Once again this year, applications will be available online. In the beginning of November you will be emailed a link to the online application and instructions for submitting the online application. If you are not 100% sure that we have the correct email address for you, please email email@example.com to confirm your email address.
Please review the Previous Scholar Recognition Rules.
Again this year, we will be holding a series of webinars to help with the online application process. The dates for our Previous Scholar-focused webinars are listed below. Please check back for more details when they become available.
- Thursday, November 7, 2013 at 7:00 p.m.
- Saturday, November 23, 2013 at 10:00 a.m.
Other News and Updates
We love to hear from our current scholars! If you have something you’d like to share, please email Amy Myers at firstname.lastname@example.org. Great things to share include community service events you are organizing, musical or other performances you are involved in, or any other accomplishment.

Keep Your Contact Information Up-to-Date!
One of our biggest challenges as an organization is “lost” scholars. If you move, you must contact us to let us know your new address and phone number – if you don’t tell us, we have no way of knowing! Similarly, if you change your email address, let us know that as well!
If we don’t have your current contact information, you will likely miss receiving important news from us about the organization, deadlines for applying for Recognition, and even deadlines for receiving your scholarship payout when you go to college. Don’t let this happen! Call us at 410.828.1005 or email email@example.com to tell us about any and all changes.
