We are happy to announce that we will again be offering two $1,000 scholarships to young women who are graduating high school seniors planning to attend college. Students at the Brunswick County High Schools, Brunswick Academy, Brunswick County Early College Program, and private schools, along with home-schooled students, are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants must submit a 500-550 word essay on the topic, “Why Is America Exceptional?” Scholarships will be awarded based on the essay, academics, school and community involvement, and communications skills. Application materials have been distributed to the guidance departments at each public high school and will be available on this website shortly. Entries must be postmarked no later than April 21, 2017, and must be accompanied by the application form, two letters of reference (one from a teacher), high school transcript, and voter registration information.
