Golden LEAF Scholarship Programs

Golden LEAF has been a steady hand providing resources to increase the economic opportunity for the state’s rural and economically distressed communities through a variety of grantsmaking including building human infrastructure through workforce training and scholarships. Since its inception, the Golden LEAF Foundation has awarded over $41 million to help more than 19,200 students from rural North Carolina attend the state’s colleges and universities.

Scholarships are available to students from qualifying counties, who demonstrate financial need, to help them attend college at participating North Carolina public or private institutions or community colleges. Golden LEAF’s goal is for scholarship students to gain the talent, knowledge and skills needed to help their communities thrive.

Golden LEAF has two scholarship programs:

  • Golden LEAF Scholarship Program (4-year) to attend NC 4-year colleges or universities
  • Golden LEAF Scholarship Program (2-year) to attend NC community colleges

4-year program to attend NC colleges or universities

Since establishing the scholarship program, Golden LEAF has provided over 4,500 scholarships to help North Carolinians attend participating UNC System universities and private colleges and universities in NC.
