NCCAT Announces Honored Educator Scholarship Application Process Now Open

The NCCAT HES application process has opened for the 2016–2017 year and will close April 30th.

CULLOWHEE—NCCAT’s Honored Educator Scholarship (HES) program pays tribute to outstanding educators and individuals by providing scholarship funds in their names. Scholarship funds can be named in honor of classroom teachers, coaches, administrators, school board members, or community volunteers—anyone whose teaching or influence in public education has made a positive difference in the lives of others. Each fully endowed scholarship is awarded annually to a North Carolina teacher based on criteria determined by the scholarship benefactor.

You do not need to be enrolled in an NCCAT program in order to apply for a scholarship.

However, you will need to enroll and attend a program between July 2016 and June 2017.

The application process has opened for the 2016–2017 year on January 1st and will close April 30th.


You can apply for one of several Honored Educator Scholarships!

Scholarship funds provide:

instruction and program materials;

substitute teacher reimbursement;

teacher travel (excluding expenses for hotel stays or ferry while traveling);

lodging and meals provided on the NCCAT campus; and,

$250 for use in the classroom.
