Nominations are being sought for a $750 scholarship offered by the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Administrative Professionals Association (NCCEAPA) through March 17. The scholarship is available to North Carolina residents pursuing a college degree (associates and/or bachelors) in business or a business-related field of study.

The scholarship is awarded annually to honor the work and dedication of Edith Herter and Frances O’Neal, co-leaders in forming the NCCEAPA in 1973.

Applicants must be enrolled to attend classes at a college or university during the 2021-22 school year. Qualified applicants interested in applying for this scholarship may obtain an application packet from the financial aid office at their local community college.
