Investing in brilliance, right in our own backyard

At Greensboro College, we believe every student should have access to a high-quality, private-college education that empowers them to define their path in life. We feel especially committed to those right here in our own community. That’s why we’ve created the new Stay Local Scholarship, just for students from our home state of North Carolina. After all, nurturing bright minds in our own backyard builds a better future for all of us.

Students who meet the following criteria are eligible for the Stay Local scholarship:

  1. Enroll as a first time freshman in Fall 2020
  2. Be a North Carolina resident*
  3. File a 2020-21 FAFSA

*Students receiving Say Yes to Education Scholarships in Guilford County will be not eligible for this scholarship.

How much is the Stay Local Scholarship?

Students Who Are Pell Eligible:

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 Pell Eligible:

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.
