Lace up those sneakers, basketball fans! Each year, North Carolina’s 26 electric cooperatives award full scholarships to local middle school students to attend summer collegiate basketball camps. Each cooperative will select one middle school boy for a full scholarship to attend the Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp in Chapel Hill, and one middle school girl for a scholarship to attend at the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp in Raleigh. More than 50 scholarships will be awarded statewide.

2020 Camp Dates:
- Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp: June 20-24, 2020
- Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp: June 21-24, 2020
To be eligible to apply for a scholarship, students must be in sixth, seventh or eighth grades during the 2020-2021 school year at a qualifying school in North Carolina. Contact your local electric cooperative to determine if your child’s school is eligible. Applicants will be judged on their academics, extracurricular activities, an essay and short-answer question.
Campers will work closely with college basketball 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.
The Touchstone Energy Sports Camp scholarship program provides a unique educational and athletic opportunity for our state’s youth and demonstrates the electric cooperatives’ commitment to community.

Note: This application is only for a scholarship to attend camp. North Carolina’s Electric Cooperatives does not operate either camp. For information specifically about the basketball camps, please contact UNC or N.C. State athletics.
