NCBA Foundation Scholarship Program
Since 1984, the NCBA Foundation Scholarship Program has supported the pursuit of higher education by awarding annual cash stipends to children of financial institution employees. This program is only available to those institutions who have bought-in to our Scholarship Program (list of participants). Please note that only North Carolina employees of institutions are eligible to participate in the Scholarship Program.
The North Carolina Bankers Association Foundation’s 2021 Scholarship application cycle has begun. You can obtain the application by clicking here.* The deadline for receipt of the completed application and all required documentation is Friday, March 12. All interviews will be conducted virtually on Tuesday, April 20 (this is the only day and time the interviews will take place). Please contact Vickie Bowers for information about the NCBA Foundation’s Scholarship Program (800-662-7044 or email@example.com) or if you have any questions.
*It has been brought to our attention that quite a number of colleges and universities are not requiring the submission of ACT or SAT scores with their college applications for the upcoming freshman class of 2021. So, following suit, the NCBA Foundation will not require the submission of a copy of the student’s ACT and/or SAT scores to accompany their application (to be considered complete) for our 2021 Scholarship awards. However, we are asking that if the student has taken the ACT and/or the SAT to submit a copy of those with the application. Removing the criteria of the ACT/SAT scores from the calculation in determining the top 15 applicants (per our current guidelines), means that the unweighted GPA is how the scholarship applications will be ranked for this year.
Below are the 2020 recipients of our NCBA Foundation Scholarships. Congratulations!!
