Shelton Continuing Education Endowment
The Shelton Continuing Education Endowment Scholarship is designed for individuals who are interested in gaining admission to an undergraduate degree program at NC State, yet may need to initially enroll through Lifelong Education. The donorís intent is to provide incentives to support a student who may have extenuating circumstances that prevent regular admission, or circumstances which will not currently allow full-time regular admission. The scholarship provides tuition support for students to enroll in NC State credit courses through the Lifelong Education program. The Director of Credit Programs & Summer Sessions, or his designee, will select scholarship recipient(s) via the process described below. The Shelton Continuing Education Endowment Scholarship welcomes applications from individuals who are planning to enroll as undergraduate Lifelong Education (UGS) students in course work applicable to their intended major. The selection process focuses on a review of an applicantís leadership qualities and capacities, community involvement, and other personal traits which demonstrate motivation and potential with regard to future academic success and career excellence. Applicants should describe extenuating circumstances that have affected performance or current circumstances that make full time regular enrollment impossible. Awards shall be for tuition and fees in support of a maximum of two courses in a regular semester or summer session and may be renewable in support of up to two additional courses, subject to the availability of funds, if the recipient maintains satisfactory academic progress as determined by Credit Programs & Summer Sessions with respect to the studentís intended major.
