Carson Scholars Fund

CAP is helping bring the Carson Scholars Fund to Chatham and surrounding counties. 

The Carson Scholars Program was founded in 1994 by world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson and his wife, Candy. The Carson Scholars Program recognizes and rewards academic excellence in young students (grades 4-11) who also have strong humanitarian qualities. New scholars receive a $1,000 scholarship towards college, medal and certificate, and their school receives a trophy. Each year, scholars may reapply and renew their status as a Carson Scholar provided that they maintain their academic status and high level of volunteerism.

Working with the Carson Scholars Fund provides the opportunity for CAP to support its own legacy of improving education, promoting literacy, and rewarding high academic achievers.

During our first year, our goal is to raise $3,000 for the Carson Scholars Fund so that scholarships can be awarded to Chatham County students in grades 4-11. As more funds are raised, adjacent counties will be included in the scholarship offerings.
