The Carson Scholars Fund awards $1,000 college scholarships to students in grades 4-11 who excel academically and are dedicated to serving their communities. Students must attend an accredited K-12 school in the United States.
An interested student must be nominated by his/her school to be able to compete for a Carson Scholarship. It is up to a school how to determine its nominee. The minimum requirements are a 3.75 GPA and involvement in community service. In general, a school is only allowed to nominate one student. To learn more about how we calculate GPAs, please click here.
If you would like your school to receive an application, please have a school official (teacher, counselor, or principal) contact the Carson Scholars Fund. The school official should complete our Application Request Form. Requests from individual students, parents, or other community members cannot be accepted.
