The Gina Guthrie Scholarship Fund is excited to announce that we are currently taking applications for our spring 2022 Cabarrus County scholarship award!

In fall of 2020 we announced that every spring we will be awarding an annual scholarship exclusively for students graduating from a public high school in Cabarrus County and headed to college. Last year we were proud to award Jay M. Robinson H.S. senior Blake Anderson $2,500 to help him out with his tuition at Montreat College. We are now preparing to award our second Cabarrus County scholarship for spring of 2022. If you are a senior at any Cabarrus County public high school and attending a university in the fall, you are eligible for this award. Our scholarship for 2022 will be a $2,500 award to help defer college costs as our recipient heads into their freshman year.


To determine the recipient of the award, we are holding an essay contest that consists of three parts. First, the applicant has to show financial need. We do not need your or your family’s full financial records - but you need to tell us about your financial situation and how this scholarship will help you. Second, we want you to write about something in life that you’ve had to overcome. Like all of us, Gina’s life was filled with obstacles that she was able to overcome on her way to becoming a wonderful mother, educator, world traveler, caterer, and a pillar of her community. We would like to know about some adversity that occurred in your life and how you were able to overcome it. Third, we would like to know what your goals are. These could be your academic goals for college, your career goals, or your life goals. What do you want to do and who do you want to become? There is no minimum or maximum on words, so please write whatever you feel it takes to cover all three topics. We are taking applications now, so feel free to send in a submission today. Please be sure to include your current high school as well as the institution you will be attending in the fall. The deadline for applications is May 15th and the recipient will be announced May 31st. We look forward to hearing from you!
