fridayadultscholarshipThe fall deadline for the Friday Adult Learner Scholarship is just around the corner. All applications must be submitted by December 7 to be considered.

Each fall and spring semester the Friday Adult Learner Scholarship awards $750 to two part-time, degree-seeking, undergraduate students age 24 or older studying at UNC-Chapel Hill. The scholarship is named for former UNC President Bill Friday, who strove to make a University education available to all citizens of North Carolina. The scholarship can be applied to college expenses for the semester for either Carolina Courses Online or Part-time Classroom Studies. Funding for the scholarship comes from donor contributions.

Please submit a one-page letter describing your goals and need for the scholarship by December 7. Send your application via email to Arlene Rainey at with a subject line of “Friday Adult Learner Scholarship.” Include your name and PID on the application.

This scholarship is not automatically renewable but recipients are welcome to reapply in subsequent semesters. If you miss the fall semester deadline, the spring semester deadline is July 1, 2016.
