NCCAT Honored Educator Scholarship Program Application Process Open

Honored Educator Scholarship application process is now open

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 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 while traveling);

 lodging and meals provided on the NCCAT campus; and,

 $250 for use in the classroom.


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 2018 and June 2019.

The application process opened for the 2018–2019 year on January 1st and will close April 30th. Scholarship recipients will be notified by May 31st.
