    Seniors are you interested in a degree in Textiles from North Carolina State University? Below is information about some valuable scholarship opportunities. One way to be eligble for these scholarships is to let me (Mrs Porter) know so that the scholarships committee can nonominate you! Please let me know by October 19th of your interest. You can also self nominate. 

    Up to eight of the Centennial Scholarships are valued at $60,000 (over four years). These scholarships will cover approximately 70% of the basic in-state costs of attending NC State University.  One component that makes this scholarship program unique is that each Centennial Scholar will also have access to a $7,500 enrichment fund.  The enrichment fund is designed to provide funding for our Scholars to participate in a variety of leadership, language immersion, career exploration and international Textile-related programs that will complement their study of Textiles.
