Middle School Enrichment Scholarship
The North Carolina Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NCASFAA) awards scholarships to encourage disadvantaged middle school students to begin considering attending college after finishing high school by providing tuition to a summer enrichment program at a North Carolina college or university. Each student will be matched with a mentor to assist them with selecting a program and requesting funds from NCASFAA.
