UNC Campus BaseD Scholarship

 

 The 2002 North Carolina Legislature created the UNC Campus Scholarships, which became effective July 1, 2003, by consolidating the former Elizabeth City State University Incentive Program, Incentive Grants for Certain Constituent Institutions, Incentive Scholarship Program for Native Americans, the Minority Presence Grant, Freshman Scholars Programs and Legislative College Opportunity Program.  These guidelines are intended to govern the award and offers of undergraduate scholarships under the UNC Campus Scholarship Program at Elizabeth City State University pursuant to Session Law 2002-126, Section 9.4: http://www.ncleg.net/Sessions/2001/Bills/Senate/HTML/S1115v7.html. The State Education Assistance Authority administers the UNC Campus Scholarships. View the entire Guideline for the UNC Campus Scholarship Program.
