Scholarship applications open on March 1st, 2022, and must be submitted in entirety or postmarked by the extended deadline of May 7th, 2022. Applicants will be notified of decisions by May 16th, 2022.
In order to be eligible, students must be graduating this summer from an accredited high school located in Catawba County, North Carolina.

We encourage any and all eligible high school seniors to apply!
The mission of the NAACP is to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination. We are looking to support and inspire local youth who uphold these ideals. We feel that it is imperative to develop intelligent, compassionate, and informed youth, as they will be the next generation of civil rights and community leaders.
Scholarship packets are available for pickup from most high school guidance offices, Morning Star First Baptist Church, Hartzell Memorial UMC, Patrick Beaver Memorial Library, Hickory Ridgeview Library, and the Ridgeview Recreation Center.
