Lace up those sneakers, basketball fans! Each year, North Carolina’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives accept applications from middle-school students for all-expense paid scholarships to summer basketball camps at the University of North Carolina and N.C. State University.
Watch this testimonial video from Brunswick Electric to learn more about the positive impact of this scholarship program.
Young men can apply to attend the Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp in Chapel Hill, and young women can vie for a spot at the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp in Raleigh. More than 50 scholarships are awarded to students statewide annually.
The 2019 application period has ended. Applications for summer 2020 will be accepted beginning Jan. 1.
To be eligible to apply, students must be rising sixth, seventh or eighth graders at a qualifying school in North Carolina. Applicants will be judged on their academics, extracurricular activities and an essay that must accompany the application.
Campers will work closely with the college coaches and camp staff to develop fundamental skills that help the young athletes perform and excel both on and off the court. Campers will stay in dorms overnight during the camp sessions and must provide their own transportation to and from camp.
The Touchstone Energy Sports Camp scholarship program provides a unique educational and athletic opportunity for our state’s youth and demonstrates Touchstone Energy’s core values of accountability, integrity, innovation and particularly, commitment to community.
