Annual Carson Scholars Fund Awards Ceremony Set For May 11

  • Wednesday, March 20, 2019

The Carson Scholars Fund announces that 505 scholarships have been awarded to exceptional students across the nation. The CSF celebrates 46 new and 52 recognized students from the southeast U.S. who are being named 2019 Carson Scholars.  Twenty-three of those new scholars and 27 recognized scholars hail from Hamilton County. "These young adults are exceptional, not only in the academic setting, but also in their communities," officials said.
Carson Scholars are individuals in grades 4-11 who display outstanding academic achievement (at least a 3.75 GPA) and humanitarian qualities. Students receive a $1,000 college scholarship and the coveted honor of being named a Carson Scholar.  

To celebrate their accomplishments, 98 scholars from the southeastern United States will be recognized at the Chattanooga/Atlanta Awards Banquet on Saturday, May 11, starting at noon at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. 
The Carson Scholars Fund will also recognize scholars across the country at six additional regional banquets.
