The Goodnight Scholarships office prepares North Carolina's top STEM talent to become transformational leaders at NC State University, in North Carolina and in the world.

Goodnight Scholarships

The Goodnight Scholarships office is home to two scholarship programs, the Goodnight Scholars Program and the Goodnight Transfer Scholars Program. The Goodnight Scholars Program was founded in 2008, and the Goodnight Transfer Scholars Program was founded in 2017, both with generous support from NC State alumni Jim Goodnight ‘65 and Ann Goodnight ‘68. In addition to full-tuition scholarships, both offer comprehensive student development programs designed to develop scholars into leaders within the STEM and STEM-education fields.

Lila Cantrell (‘24) visited Mexico this past winter break on the Great Migrations study abroad trip. Starting in Mexico City, she was able to see the ruins of Teotihuacan. Then she headed to the mountains to see thousands of butterflies on their migration destination to the warm forested reserves. Finally, she went to the coast and stopped at Puerto Vallarta to whale watch and learn more about the coastal ecosystem. Her trip was ecosystem oriented and encouraged her to minor in wildlife science and marine science.
