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 the greater Greensboro area. 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. Apply and be accepted as a first-time freshman in fall 2020

    • Randolph
    • Rockingham
    • Stokes
  3. File a 2020-21 FAFSA

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