The cohort represents 10 North Carolina community colleges and four NC State academic colleges. Recipients were selected from a pool of 30 finalists who participated in an extensive application and interview process which included evaluation from NC State faculty, staff, and Goodnight Scholars Program alumni.
“We truly enjoyed meeting our finalists at our first-ever transfer interview day, and we’re excited to welcome the recipients to campus this fall,” said Allison Medlin, director of the Goodnight Scholars Program. “From their applications to their interviews, everyone involved in our selection process was impressed by the talent, achievements and perseverance of these fifteen students. Our program, and NC State, will benefit from their participation in our community.”
With the addition of transfer students, which will increase the total number of undergraduate Goodnight Scholars to 225 in fall 2018, the Goodnight Scholars Program represents one of the first scholarship programs in the U.S. to offer a generous scholarship and comprehensive developmental programming catered towards transfer students attending a four-year public university.
