GREENSBORO, N.C. – Greensboro College’s Office of Financial Aid is pleased to announce a new scholarship for students from the greater Greensboro area.

The Stay Local Scholarship is available to freshmen entering in Fall 2020 who are attending high school in Alamance, Caswell, Davidson, Forsyth, Randolph, Rockingham, and Stokes counties, and to any students attending high school in Guilford County who are not receiving Say Yes Guilford scholarships.

Students who are eligible for the Federal Pell Grant according to the 2020-2021 FAFSA will receive a combination of federal, state, and institutional gift aid equal to the amount of full tuition.

Students who are not eligible for the Federal Pell Grant could receive a Stay Local Scholarship ranging from $500 to $2,500, based on financial need.

To qualify, students must:

  • Apply and be accepted as a first-time freshman student at Greensboro College for Fall 2020.
  • Graduate from a public or private high school in any one of the eight designated counties.
  • File a 2020-21 FAFSA using Greensboro College’s code number: 002930.

Applying to Greensboro College is free, as is filling out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).

Greensboro College’s Stay Local Scholarship was inspired by a successful partnership with Say Yes Guilford, which provides financial aid to college students who graduated from Guilford County High Schools.

“Our partnership with Say Yes Guilford has been great for Greensboro College and the community,” says Lindsay Latham, senior director of student financial services.

“We currently have more than 100 students enrolled through the Say Yes program. Using this success as inspiration, we developed the new Stay Local Scholarship, allowing us to reach even more students in our local community.”

Greensboro College provides a liberal arts education grounded in the traditions of the United Methodist Church and fosters the intellectual, social, and, spiritual development of all students while supporting their individual needs.

Founded in 1838 and located in downtown Greensboro, the college enrolls about 1,000 students from 29 states and territories, the District of Columbia, and seven foreign countries in its undergraduate liberal-arts program and six master’s degree programs. In addition to rigorous academics and a well-supported Honors program, the school features a 17-sport NCAA Division III athletic program and dozens of service and recreational opportunities.
