This year, Elizabeth City State University will celebrate 131 years of providing higher education opportunities for some of the most talented and dedicated students in northeastern North Carolina and beyond. 

During the past 14 years, the Founders Day Scholarship Gala has helped raise more than $1.4 million for student scholarships. With the continuous support and engagement of our partners and donors, we hope to ensure an even brighter future for ECSU students and fuel a culture of growth throughout the region.


The Chancellor’s Legacy Awards program, organized by the Office of the Chancellor in partnership with the ECSU Foundation, Inc., recognizes individuals, business and/or corporations and foundations who have best demonstrated the standard of excellence that defines and shapes ECSU as an institution.  Recipients will be recognized on Saturday, March 12, 2022 at the ECSU Foundation, Inc.
