This year, the Carson Scholars Fund awarded 477 scholarships to students across the nation.Due to the restrictions currently in place due to the (COVID-19) pandemic, the 24th annual Carson Scholars Fund banquet, which was to be held in Maryland on May 3, 2020, has been cancelled. Other festivities are being planned to celebrate the 2020 Carson Scholars.
Carson Scholars are exceptional, not only in the academic setting, but in their communities and globally. Carson Scholars are individuals in grades 4-11 who display outstanding academic achievement (at least a 3.75 GPA) and humanitarian qualities.
