***Cheatham-White Scholarship program established at NCCU and NC A&T***

CHAPEL HILL – Students will soon be able to apply for the Cheatham-White Scholarship, a newly established merit-based scholarship program for incoming freshmen attending North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University or North Carolina Central University beginning in the fall of 2018.

The program will provide an outstanding educational experience for students who are exceptional scholars, versatile and well-rounded individuals. Cheatham-White Scholars will represent students with a broad range of interests, proficient in areas of both the arts and sciences, demonstrate leadership potential and a strong commitment to service. The state budget recently approved by the General Assembly provides funding for up to 20 Cheatham-White scholarships at each university.

The scholarships are named in honor of Henry Cheatham and George White, African Americans who represented North Carolina in Congress around the turn of the 20th century. Cheatham, an educator who founded an orphanage for black children, won election in 1890 and 1892. White, an attorney who studied at Howard University, won the same 2nd District seat in 1896 and 1898.

“The Cheatham-White Scholarship program recognizes future leaders with a strong commitment to public service by providing an opportunity to receive a top-notch education,” said UNC system president Margaret Spellings. “These scholarships also honor the legacy of great public servants like Henry Cheatham and George Henry White.
