University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
We are pleased to announce that The Thomas Wolfe Scholarship is beginning its eighteenth year at Carolina. Our scholarship for full undergraduate support for student writers will open its fifteenth submission period as follows: The Thomas Wolfe Scholarship will receive applications beginning September 1st, 2018. Our Thomas Wolfe Scholarship application process involves two (2) steps:
Step 1) an application to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill by October 15th, 2018; and,
Step 2) an application to the Thomas Wolfe Scholarship by November 15th, 2018. Students must apply to both the University and the Scholarship to be considered. Preliminary screening will be completed in January, 2019, with final screening concluding in early March, 2019. Three outstanding candidates will be brought to the UNC-Chapel Hill campus for interviews, and a final decision will be made in early April, 2019.
Novelist and short-story writer Thomas Wolfe of Asheville, North Carolina entered Carolina in the fall of 1916 and graduated in the spring of 1920. Wolfe loved Chapel Hill, which he celebrated as Pulpit Hill in Look Homeward, Angel, the novel he published to international acclaim in 1929: “The university was a charming, an unforgettable place. . . . The central campus sloped back and up and over a broad area of rich turf, groved with magnificent ancient trees . . . . the wilderness crept up to it like a beast.”
Wolfe had but one playwriting course to take. Students in our Creative
Writing Program now choose courses in fiction, poetry, nonfiction, stylistics, and songwriting, and courses in playwriting and screenwriting are also offered by the Departments of Dramatic Art and Communications Studies. With five semesters of credit, students can minor in Creative Writing, and we believe ours to be among the strongest undergraduate writing programs in the country.
More complete information on The Thomas Wolfe Scholarship, including the application form, is available on the University's website athttp://englishcomplit.unc.edu/creative/scholarship/tws outlining the features, procedures, documents, and specific requirements for application.

Cadet scholarships available at UNG!
Do you have students who need assistance with paying for college? Check out our Cadet scholarships that are available at UNG!
The State of Georgia funds 42 scholarships each year to Georgia students that are interested in joining the Georgia Army National Guard and the University of North Georgia Corps of Cadets. This means you can still have a full time job after graduating college while serving part time in the Guard!
Recipients of the University of North Georgia Military Scholarship (UNGMS) are even able to make $30,000 - $40,000 over four years as a Cadet. The scholarship pays for room, meals, tuition, books, uniforms and fees. The total worth of the UNGMS is over $70,000. In recent years, just under 60 qualified and completed applications are received annually.
Army ROTC Scholarships are available nationally to Cadets who participate in a Senior Army ROTC program. This scholarship differs from the UNGMS in what it covers: tuition and fees or room and board, up to $10,000. It is important to realize that both scholarships require service in the U.S. Army after graduation.
Additionally, Cadet Admissions awards Leadership Scholarships to incoming Cadets based on merit and financial need. These scholarships range from $500-$3,000 and are funded by alumni donations to help off-set the cost of college for incoming Cadets. For Georgia residents (not on UNGMS), they are also eligible for the Georgia ROTC and Future Officer Grant ranging from $1,500 to $4,000 a year.
