The GAA encourages Carolina Clubs to support Carolina students from their area through local club scholarships. 44 students from 23 GAA-sponsored local Carolina Club regions received a Carolina Club scholarship for the 2018-19 academic year. Carolina Clubs provided more than $71,000 in scholarship funds this year.
For Carolina Club scholarships, Carolina alumni and friends raise funds, and the Office of Scholarships and Student Aid administers those scholarships and selects the recipients based on financial need. With the exception of the Hong Kong Carolina Club, which provides full scholarships to students to study abroad in Hong Kong.
