For over 35 years, the Craven Community College Foundation has provided financial support to thousands of students as well as programs, equipment, facilities and other college priorities. With a legacy of helping students, the Foundation is committed to the college and its goals.

The Craven Community College Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 1977, exists to support the educational goals of Craven Community College and its students. Most of the support has come in the form of student scholarships. However, with difficult budget constraints and increasing enrollments, the Foundation has expanded its mission to increase support for college programs and initiatives while retaining its commitment to student scholarships.

Thanks to the generosity of donors, we are able to offer scholarships to qualified students who need financial assistance to achieve their dreams.

Scholarships are awarded on various criteria, usually reflecting the values and priorities of the donors. Some are based on financial need, while others are based on student's interest in a specific field or his or her interest in further education and scholastic achievement.
