Applications for 2024 are due by April 1, 2024


Each spring, an application will be available via the Cape Hatteras Secondary School, via this website or by emailing


Applicants are also required to complete a brief interview with the scholarship committee.


Scholarship funds can be used for continued education and career development after high school – be it university, community college, trade school/program or even transition to military duty. Applications are reviewed annually in the spring. Funds are distributed directly to the educational institution.  Each scholarship is $600.


There is a two-year eligibility window that begins the year the student graduates from high school. If a student does not apply in their first year of eligibility, they are invited to apply the second year.


To be eligible, applicants must:

  • Be a full-time resident of Rodanthe, Waves or Salvo or be the dependent of a full-time permanent resident.


  • Graduate from high school in the designated year. 


  • Complete an application form and brief interview.


If awarded during their first year of eligibility, a student can complete a brief application for their second year scholarship.
