Larry Weaver Scholarship

Larry Weaver Scholarship

The Larry Weaver Scholarship Fund is a renewable scholarship program for students in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill College of Arts & Sciences.

The fund was established in 2016 by an endowment gift from Larry Weaver. The scholarship provides financial assistance to worthy recipients with demonstrated financial need.

A first-generation college graduate, Larry attended UNC where he received a B.S. in Business Administration in 1992. He received the Hiram D. (Butch) Strickland Scholarship to attend UNC. The scholarship was established in memory of Pfc. Strickland, who was killed in action in Vietnam. Larry was so moved by the family’s story that he endowed the Larry Weaver Scholarship to ensure that future generations of students will have access to a higher education.

Based on his belief in giving back to the community, Larry asks the Office of Scholarships and Student Aid give preference to students from Alamance County. If, in a given year, there are no eligible recipients from Alamance County, then the Office may select recipients from surrounding counties, including Orange, Chatham, Randolph, Guilford, Rockingham and Caswell.

Distributions from the Fund will be used by the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences to provide need-based scholarships for students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Distributions shall be renewable for the recipient’s undergraduate study providing the student maintains a satisfactory academic average.

Awards will be based upon:
1) Ability as indicated by sound scholastic record; and
2) Financial need, as demonstrated to the satisfaction of the Office of Scholarships and Student Aid.

How to apply:
There is no application. Students are selected and notified by the University.
