Goodnight Scholarships Select Finalists for Class of 2027

The Goodnight Scholarships office at NC State University revealed 104 finalists who will participate in the Program’s 9th Annual first-year Finalist Interview Day.

From the Finalist Interview Day, 50 students will be invited to join the Goodnight Scholars Program’s Class of 2027.

“Finalist Interview Day is one of our favorite days of the year,” said Allison Medlin, executive director of the Goodnight Scholarships office. “It is such an affirming day that gives us the opportunity to get to know these outstanding finalists better while at the same time introducing them to our program and campus. We’re so proud of our students and this university, and Finalist Interview Day is an opportunity to demonstrate and celebrate what makes this such a special community.”

The 104 finalists were selected from a pool of candidates from across North Carolina and represent 84 high schools, 42 counties, and six NC State academic colleges. Finalist applications were reviewed by a volunteer committee consisting of current and former NC State faculty, staff, and alumni, as well as industry representatives from SAS Institute and the Kenan Fellows Program. Each finalist demonstrated exceptional high school accomplishments including outstanding academic achievement, extracurricular involvement, community engagement, and an affinity for STEM and education.
