This Golden LEAF grant will support the administration of the revised Golden LEAF scholarship program for the 2011-2012 school year. The revised program offers four-year, $12,000 scholarships to students from rural North Carolina counties that are economically distressed or tobacco dependent to attend participating North Carolina colleges and universities. The program will also support students from eligible counties that are transferring from community colleges to participating schools. The goal of the program is to offer the opportunity to attend college to students from Golden LEAF priority counties who would not have had the chance to attend without Golden LEAF support, with the hope that after graduation those students will be better able to provide leadership and support the economies of their home counties.
