The Carson Scholars Fund awards $1,000 college scholarships to students in grades 4-11 that excel academically and are dedicated to serving their communities. An interested student must be nominated by the principal at their school to be able to compete for a Carson Scholarship. Carson Scholars must have a GPA of 3.75 and display humanitarian qualities through community service. Scholarships are awarded solely on the basis of academic achievement and humanitarian qualities, without regard to financial need or ethnicity. To learn more about how we calculate GPAs, please visit http://carsonscholars.org/gpa-calculation-rules-and-policies.
All educators, teachers, and administrators with a valid school email address from public and private schools across the country are welcome to request an application for the Carson Scholarship program*. Please follow the directions on the Request an Application section on our website.
Teachers and administrators play an important role in a student’s life. Teachers are often instrumental in instilling a love of learning and the pursuit of higher education within their students. We also understand that many teachers would love to celebrate their students’ success in their classroom through an outside award.
Applications for the 2014 Scholarship Season will be available online in early November 2013.
