Six thousand seven hundred scholarships and counting...

Scholarship Supporters

Thank you for your interest in supporting the Carson Scholars Fund scholarship program. Our generous supporters have allowed the Carson Scholars Fund to award over 6,700 scholarships across the country. We are able to award Carson Scholarships through annual donations and lifelong endowments. An annual donation of $1,500 dollars will ensure that a school or region of your choice will be able to guarantee a Carson Scholarship award to one of their students. An endowment of $30,000 dollars can create a lifelong commitment to one school or region and guarantee the selection of a Carson Scholar each year. For more information on how you can support our scholarship program, learn how to Sponsor a Scholarship.

The Ten Step Endowment Process

Contributions are vital to the fulfillment of Dr. Carson's dream of recognizing and rewarding our nation's highest academic achievers. Please visit our Support Us page to make a donation or contact our Executive Director, Amy Warner, at for more information. Please note that contributions and funding cannot be allocated to an individual student.

Thank you to all of the 2015 scholarship and awards banquet support:
