The Chapel Hill-Carrboro NAACP awarded scholarships to six fine high school seniors for 2023 and also renew scholars to the former recipients meeting criteria.

The 2023 recipients are:

The vision of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure a society in which all individuals have equal rights and there is no discrimination based on race.


To support this vision, the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Branch of the NAACP awards scholarships to high school seniors selected from the four high schools in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City School System.


The scholarships recognize academic achievement, civic engagement, leadership qualities, and strong character. The four-year scholarship award is in the amount of $1,000 the first year and is renewable for up to $500 each year for a maximum of three additional years or the attainment of an undergraduate degree. The total value is up to $2,500.


Recipients of the NAACP Scholarships emerge from a competitive application and interview process demonstrating the potential for ongoing success.
