    The Thomas Wolfe Scholarship

      We are pleased to announce that The Thomas Wolfe Scholarship (plus summer stipends) is beginning its twenty-first year at Carolina. Our scholarship for full undergraduate support for student writers will open its twenty-first submission period as follows: The Thomas Wolfe Scholarship will receive applications beginning September 13th 2021. 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, 2021; and,
    Step 2) an application to the Thomas Wolfe Scholarship by November 15th, 2021. Students must apply to both the University and the Scholarship to be considered.  Preliminary screening will be completed in January, 2022, with final screening concluding in early March, 2022. Three outstanding candidates will either be brought to the UNC-Chapel Hill campus for interviews or interviewed virtually and a final decision will be made in early April 2022. 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, grove 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, musical writing, and playwriting; courses in playwriting and screenwriting are also offered by the Departments of Dramatic Art and Communications Studies. With five semesters of credit, students can major or 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 at https://englishcomplit.unc.edu/creative-writing/scholarships-and-awards/outlining the features, procedures, documents, and specific requirements for application.

    How to Pay for College With Little or No Money

    Applying and getting ready for college can be a daunting task. On top of that, the responsibility of figuring out how to pay for school can be overwhelming. So, how do you pay for college if you have no money? There are many options available to help you pay for college expenses and make your dreams within your reach!




    FAFSA and Financial Aid Resources 

    The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, commonly known as the FAFSA®, is a form you submit to the office of Federal Student Aid at the Department of Education. It collects information about student and family finances, which the FSA uses to determine your eligibility for any of nine federal financial aid programs, such as grants, work-study, and federal student loans, as well as more than 600 state aid programs. For many, it’s the first step toward an affordable education.

    The FSA sends your FAFSA® information to the colleges and universities you select. These institutions often require students to complete another college-specific financial aid form and use the combined information to award scholarships and other monies. Together, your federal and institutional aid make up your financial aid package. Each school will award you a different package, or none, depending on your eligibility.

    “Love is free, spread it everywhere.”- Sander Jennings

    With the rise of social media, we are more connected than ever. And while this increased connectedness allows us to come together and support one another, it has also created a platform for people to spread negativity and divisiveness.

    Every day, millions of people are ridiculed and belittled because of their identity, beliefs, and looks. And sadly, these events are highly traumatic and have contributed to suicide becoming the second leading cause of death for college-aged youth.

    The antidote to this problem is complex, but it starts with increasing the amount of love and acceptance spreading through the world.

    The Sander Jennings Spread the Love Scholarship exists to ignite more love and acceptance in our world.

    High school and undergraduate students in any field of study are eligible to apply. Applicants will be asked to write a short essay about how their journey with self-love and acceptance has impacted their beliefs, relationships, and aspirations.

    Huggable Supermom Scholarship: Cash & Baby Formula Award


    At Huggable, we know that being a new mother isn’t a walk in the park. With a million things on your to-do list, it’s hard to find time for yourself. For the single mothers amongst us, it’s that much harder to make everything work as you get your little one off to the best start possible. For the Huggable Supermom Scholarship, we focus on supporting single moms, children of single moms, or people whose lives have been impacted in positive ways by single moms. Put simply, the Huggable Supermom Scholarship is a student scholarship designed to support single mothers and those who support them and benefit from their love.

    Why is this our focus?

    According to the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, more than 11% of undergraduate students in the US are single mothers—that’s more than 2.1 million students. Of those single mothers in university, only 8% will complete their degrees—making them 6 times less likely to graduate than their peers. They will also graduate with an average of nearly $30,000 in student debt, almost $5,000 more debt, on average, than their peers. However, single mothers who attain their Bachelor’s degrees are 3 times more likely to live above the poverty level. They earn 62% more, translating to nearly $300k in additional income throughout their career, on average.

    Getting a degree is incredibly high-leverage for single mothers—and or those around them. The potential for long-term improvement in the quality of life is enormous. At Huggable, we believe that’s a cause—and opportunity—worth focusing on.

    That’s why we’ve created The Huggable Supermom Scholarship. With this program, our mission is to make things a little easier for single mothers and their loved ones. We’re giving scholarship winners $2,000 (for college winners) or $1,000 (for high school winners) to cover their costs as they pursue their degrees, as well as a year of free high-quality, organic baby formula from Huggable. Not a mother right now? No problem—we make it easy for you to defer your year of free formula until you're ready, or to donate it to a friend or loved one who is ready now.

    The Huggable Supermom Scholarship will be awarded to one college winner and one high school winner every 6 months.  The application and selection timeline is as follows:      First Application Cycle Timeline

    - Application deadline: June

    - Interviews with finalists: July

    - The first winner announced: July

    Elevate Mental Health Awareness Scholarship

    Despite living in the most prosperous and interconnected time in history, rates of depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and suicide are on the rise. In the United States, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death. It kills someone every 12 minutes.

    What’s our solution to the vast and growing mental health problem? A society that tunes out those who struggle and a broken system that offers addictive pharmaceutical drugs, outdated and inconsistent therapy practices, and understaffed hospitals with mediocre care.

    My mom, Sheri Rosser, was a victim of this broken approach.

    After struggling with depression for decades, going in and out of hospitals, and taking dozens of medications, she lost all hope and took her own life in 2017. It was the most painful and devastating experience of my life.

    The Elevate Mental Health Awareness Scholarship is dedicated to my mom Sherise Rosser, a wonderful woman who taught me the power of authenticity, belief, and compassion.

    I hope that the scholarship inspires greater awareness about mental health and fuels innovative solutions that help the millions of people who are suffering.

    When we bring the darkness to light, it will slowly fade.

    Scholarship sponsored by Brady/Cobin Law Group

    The Scholarship Contest opens in January.

    The attorneys at Brady Cobin Law Group recognize the importance of sound planning at every stage of life— when planning for college, when raising a family, when caring for aging parents and when looking toward retirement. We are pleased to sponsor a scholarship essay contest to help students with college education expenses and to focus attention on issues involved in preparing for the unexpected. Everyone discovers that life is full of surprises. Anyone can be injured in an accident at any age.

    If you are thinking about a college, you’re already thinking about the future. Planning is important for people of all ages to be prepared for unforeseen circumstances.

    A conversation between parents and their adult children and those approaching adulthood can help clarify issues related to financial responsibility and who should make financial decisions on behalf of a family member who becomes incapacitated. Most young people have not accumulated significant financial assets. But it’s still a good idea to have a simple will and a durable healthcare power of attorney. It is important to start such conversations when everyone is healthy and then revisit the issues as your circumstances change.

    Our goal as wills and estate planning attorneys at Brady Cobin Law Group is to understand our clients’ needs and provide guidance to make well-informed decisions about the future. Our attorneys recognize the importance of getting a good education to pursuing a fulfilling career and achieving future goals. We’re glad to be in a position to help some deserving students pursue their dreams with our scholarship essay contest.


    Students competing for the scholarships may select one of the three essay topics listed below:

    • What does legacy mean to you? What do you think it means to leave a legacy? Are there different kinds of valuable legacies? What sort of legacy do you want to leave behind?
    • Imagine you are 65, retired, and looking over your will. What advice would you give your younger self about retirement planning, saving, investing, writing a will, etc? What are the most important steps for planning for your future?
    • Think about the legacy you want to leave behind. How important will estate planning, creating a will, and other planning be to maintaining your legacy?

     The deadline to apply for the scholarship is May 1, 2020.  The winners will be announced in June.

    Recent Immigrant Scholarship

    America is a nation of immigrants, and much of our growth can be attributed to those born elsewhere. Immigrants start companies, innovate, and create jobs at significantly greater rates than the rest of the U.S. workforce, accounting for 15% of the workforce but 25% of entrepreneurs and 25% of patent-holding inventors. A different report showed that 71% of the tech workforce in Silicon Valley is foreign-born!

    We certainly need to continue the national discussion around the desired nature and the proper amount of U.S. immigration. That being said, immigrants are a self-selecting group of people that are willing to jump over the hurdles associated with relocating; they are typically prepared to put in the hard work required to improve their family's prospects. Coming to America is often tremendously beneficial for the immigrants themselves, but it yields enormous benefits for our country as well.

    This scholarship is open to any high school student who immigrated to the United States on or after January and plans to live & work here.


    Please write an essay that addresses all of the following points:

    • Describe your background and how you ended up in the U.S.
    • Why are you optimistic about living and working in the U.S.?
    • How does the U.S. compare to your home country? Feel free to discuss what you like about both places.

    Healthcare Administration Degree Options and Schools

    As you explore the health administration field, you need to be aware of the various educational levels for this field. If you graduate with an associate degree, your health administration duties will be different from those performed by someone who has graduated with a bachelor’s or master’s degree in health administration.

    If you earn either your bachelor’s or master’s degree, your job responsibilities will be much more on the management side of the spectrum—but you’ll still obtain a sense of satisfaction, knowing you’re helping people who need assistance with health issues.

    The Little Bundle Superdad Scholarship


    At Little Bundle, we never underestimate the challenges that come with being a parent -- especially when you’re raising a family by yourself. 

    We think it’s very important to recognize that being a single father comes with its own unique difficulties. Even though there are 2.5 million single dads in the United States (making up nearly a quarter of all single-parent households), single dads are often overlooked and underestimated. At Little Bundle, we know countless fathers are doing an amazing job of shouldering all of the parenting responsibilities on their own. However, we also understand that the demands of single parenthood can make it very tough to focus on your own goals and aspirations. 

    That’s why we want to show our solidarity with single dads, the children of single dads, and those whose lives have been positively impacted by single dads. Our mission with the Little Bundle Superdad Scholarship is to recognize the single fathers who are doing their absolute best for their children, despite not always having the time or resources that they would like. 

    Focusing on education is a fantastic way for single dads to give their children the best possible start in life. In addition to supporting single dads who are pursuing their own higher education goals, the Little Bundle Superdad Scholarship also lends a hand to the high school and college-aged children of single dads, in recognition of the paternal love and support that helped them get to this point.

    Not only does a bachelor’s degree translate to higher earnings over the course of one’s career, but it also serves to inspire the next generation by demonstrating that no matter the personal obstacles, it’s important to set goals and work hard to achieve them. We want single dads and their children to feel empowered by their achievements as a family, and be able to seize every opportunity that comes their way.  

    Our goal with the Little Bundle Superdad Scholarship is to make things a little easier for single dads and their loved ones. Similar to our Supermom Scholarship, twice a year, we’re giving one high school winner and one college winner help with tuition, in the form of a $1,000 high school award and a $2,000 college award. Each winner will also be entitled to a year of free organic baby formula from Little Bundle, which can be redeemed right away, deferred for later use, or donated to a friend or loved one.

    Scholarship Timeline

    The Little Bundle Superdad Scholarship will be awarded to one college winner and one high school winner every 6 months. The application and selection timeline is as follows:

    First Application Cycle Timeline

    - Application deadline: June 30th

    - Interviews with finalists: July

    - First winner was announced: July 31st.

    Second Application Cycle Timeline

    - Application deadline: December 31st

    - Interviews with finalists: January

    - First winner was announced: January 31st.

    Eligibility Requirements

    To be eligible for this scholarship, you must meet the requirements below. Please read the requirements carefully to ensure you meet eligibility before applying.

    - Must be a graduating high school senior in your final semester who has been accepted to the university or must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program at a 4-year, 2-year, vocational, or technical institution in the United States.

    - Must be a US citizen or permanent legal resident.

    - Must be a single father, child of a single father, or closely impacted by a single father.

    - All fields of study and GPAs will be considered.

    How to Apply

    We know that single dads have a lot on their plate -- from raising a family to pursuing education and a career, all while defying expectations and forging their own path.

    In your application for the Little Bundle Superdad Scholarship, we want to know how you do it. We want to hear about the challenges you’ve faced while juggling fatherhood and education, how you make ends meet, and what motivates you to keep going and keep dreaming. We’d love to hear about your relationship with your children and why you think that education is important -- not only to your life but to their future, as well. Tell us what makes life as a single dad rewarding, and what special moments have stuck with you during your parenting journey.

    We’d also like to hear from applicants who are the child or loved ones of a single father. What challenges did your dad have to overcome? Are there memories from your childhood in which your “super dad” inspired you, or taught you a valuable life lesson? We want to know how being raised by a single dad has impacted your life and your plans for the future.

    Whether you’re a single father yourself, or the child or loved one of a single father, we especially want to hear about your dreams and goals. What do you hope to accomplish in terms of your education, career, and family life? What steps are you already taking to give yourself the best possible chance of success -- and how will this scholarship help you get there?
