Applicants must be registered undergraduate students at Duke University, North Carolina Central University, North Carolina State University, or the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. See the full award guidelines on our website.

Applications for the 2017 awards will be accepted between February 1-15, 2017. Entries must be postmarked no later than February 15, 2017. Awards of up to $2,000 will be made by April 16, 2017.
