Community Scholarships 

Criminal Justice Fellows Program Scholarship

The mission of the North Carolina Criminal Justice Fellows Program is to recruit talented high school graduates into the criminal justice profession. Each year this program will fund fellowships for high school graduate who have exhibited high academic achievement, a history of service to the school and community, and a desire to serve the state of North Carolina in a field within the criminal justice profession.

The N.C. Criminal Justice Fellows Program will provide forgivable educational loans for high school seniors who agree to enter a criminal justice profession in North Carolina. This fellowship will fund an Applied Associates Degree in Criminal Justice or Committee approved related field of study, from any North Carolina Community College System school in an eligible county. Students who receive the educational loan would have 5 years to repay, though it would be forgiven if they enter and remain in a criminal justice profession with North Carolina for four years in an eligible county.

Students who graduate under this program in good standing will be given priority to enter a criminal justice training program for certification in an eligible criminal justice profession within the Community College System.

The number of fellowships awarded annually shall not exceed 100 and the total number of students in the program each year shall not exceed 200. 

The student must be a resident of an eligible county (see forms page) at the time of application.
