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 10,500 scholarships across the country. We are able to award Carson Scholarships through annual donations and lifelong endowments. An annual donation of $1,500 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 can create a lifelong commitment to one school or region and guarantee the selection of a Carson Scholar each year.

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, Katie Coleman, at for more information. Please note that contributions and funding cannot be allocated to an individual student.

Thank you to all of the 2023 scholarship and awards banquet supporters.
