Rowan-Cabarrus Foundation


Scholarships are provided through the Rowan-Cabarrus Foundation and the generosity many individuals, organizations, and businesses within our region. A scholarship review team determines the recipient for those scholarships awarded by the College. Students who are on academic or financial aid suspension are ineligible for scholarships.

The scholarship program consists of two kinds of awards: merit-based scholarships and need-based scholarships. Scholarships are also awarded on a competitive basis applying the following criteria: academic excellence, achievement, leadership qualities, need or other criteria as stipulated by contributors.

Awards are usually restricted to tuition assistance and require the recipient to maintain a minimum GPA to continue the scholarship. Awarded funds that are not used during the academic year are returned to the scholarship and do not carry over from year to year. Students must re-submit a scholarship application every year.

Scholarship applications are closed for the 2023-2024 school year. Students who completed an application by June 1, 2023 and who are selected for a scholarship will receive notification via their student email in July.
