One of the many benefits of membership in the State Employees Association of North Carolina is the association's scholarship program. Active and associate members, their spouses and their dependent children are eligible to apply for scholarships to attend technical schools, community colleges, trade schools, junior colleges and four-year universities or colleges.
Category I scholarships are awarded to successful candidates based on criteria that include financial need, school and community activities, character and motivation. Category II merit scholarships are awarded without consideration of financial need. Category III scholarships are for active and associate SEANC members who are working full time and are enrolled in at least six semester hours of undergraduate work or three semester hours of graduate work at an accredited post-secondary institution.
How To Apply
Applications may be downloaded at the SEANC website (seanc.org/scholarship). Applications must be received by the District Scholarship Chairperson postmarked NO LATER THAN April 15. Recommendations then are forwarded to the SEANC Scholarship Foundation Board before May 1 for final selection and notification of winners by July 1. The number and amounts of awards are determined each year by the SEANC Scholarship Foundation Board.
