Good morning,

Things here at Appalachian are shaping up as we continue making decisions for students who applied for the second notification period. We are in the final week for students to be eligible to apply for the ACCESS Scholars Program! If you are unfamiliar with the ACCESS Scholars Program, here are some features:

  • Students receive an education at Appalachian debt-free for all four years
  • Faculty advising and mentorship
  • Tutoring services and leadership development

Who is eligible

  • NC resident
  • First-year, full-time student
  • Family gross income is below the federal poverty line
  • Estimated Family Contribution equals zero

The deadline to apply for the ACCESS Scholars Program is next Wednesday, March 1. Students must submit the three essays in their MyApp portal, have two letters of recommendation and complete the résumé. Students who have already submitted the scholarship application from the first round do not need to re-submit their application for ACCESS.

Please continue to encourage your students to complete this application, and if you have further questions, feel free to contact me. We appreciate your advocacy for your students and look forward to selecting the ACCESS Scholars Program recipients for fall 2017.
