Students must have at least a B average and demonstrate financial need.
Scholarship applications will be available in the guidance offices at the three county high schools and Carteret County Community College, as well as at the N.C. State Extension office at the CMAST Building, 303 College Drive, Morehead City. The telephone there is 252-222-6352.
