Club Scholars

The GAA encourages Carolina Clubs to support Carolina students from their area through local club scholarships. 49 students from 21 GAA-sponsored local Carolina Club regions received a Carolina Club scholarship for the 2017-18 academic year. Carolina Clubs provided more than $76,000 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.

Two clubs offered a different type of scholarship this year: The Ann Arbor Carolina Club provided a summer internship scholarship for a Carolina Covenant scholar, and the Hong Kong Carolina Club provided a full scholarship to four students to study abroad in Hong Kong.
