Meet the 2017 Centennial Scholars

2017 Centennial Scholars

We are thrilled to introduce you to our 2017 class of Centennial Scholarship recipients. The Centennial Scholarship program was established by the North Carolina Textile Foundation (NCTF) in 1999 as a part of the Wilson College of Textiles’ Centennial Celebration. The Centennial Scholarship provides each student a minimum of $15,000 per year for four years. Centennials are awarded to incoming freshmen on the basis of academic achievement in high school, proven and potential leadership qualities, extracurricular activities and unique life experiences.

The scholarship also provides $7,500 as a special enrichment fund that may be used for study abroad, leadership programs, career explorations or other approved enrichment activities.

This year’s group of winners includes athletes, musicians, volunteers, leaders in student government and their communities, members of National Honor Society and other school organizations. We are pleased to now call them members of the Wilson College of Textiles family.

Learn more about the Centennial Scholarship program and all of our scholarship opportunities. The Wilson College of Textiles is proud to say we have the largest per-student college-based scholarship program at NC State.
