Types of Scholarships

Unrestricted Funds: Donors who give an unrestricted gift enable versatility into their charitable giving. These resources are most useful to Wilson Community College from an ongoing basis in response to changing needs and opportunities. Donors entrust the Board of Directors to select the most appropriate allocations.

Restricted Funds: A gift may be restricted for a program of study (curriculum or continuing education), library and classroom resources, faculty and staff development, lecture series, opportunities in the arts, innovative grant possibilities, and more.

Scholarship Funds: Scholarship funds assist individuals pursuing educational goals and recognize individual excellence. Donors may specify the criteria for scholarship awards.

Endowment Funds: Choosing to endow your gift with the Wilson Community College Foundation ensures ongoing annual support in perpetuity. This is made possible through income generated annually from your investment of $10,000 or greater. The minimum donation of $10,000 to establish an endowed fund may be paid in one lump sum or over a period of three years.
