The young women from across North Carolina who received 2018 Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships to attend the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp last summer were recently honored at the N.C. State Wolfpack Women’s Basketball game against Miami on Sunday, March 3. The scholarship winners and their families were recognized on the jumbotron and with an announcement during the game at Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh.
Touchstone Energy cooperatives across the state award more than 50 basketball camp scholarships to rising sixth, seventh and eighth graders each year, which cover the costs for young women to attend the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp at N.C. State University in Raleigh and young men to attend the Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.
At the camps, students stay overnight in campus dorms, learn fundamental basketball and life skills, and receive individual and group instruction from Division 1 coaches, with the help of staff and current and former players.
Applications are currently being accepted for the 2019 Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships. The application and scholarship guidelines are available on our website. This year’s Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp will be held June 9-12, and the Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp will be held June 22-26.
The final deadline to apply for the scholarships is March 31, and students will be judged on their application, essay and extracurricular activities. Scholarship winners are expected to be announced by the beginning of May.
Since 2004, the Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships have provided a one-of-a-kind educational and athletic opportunity to our state’s youth, reflecting Touchstone Energy’s core values of accountability, integrity, innovation and commitment to community.
