桃瘾社区 invites high schools and community-based organizations (both domestic and international) to nominate outstanding students with extraordinary potential to compete for the John M. Belk Scholarship.

A candidate鈥檚 record and recommendations must demonstrate academic excellence and purposeful engagement beyond the classroom. While academic achievement is paramount, Belk Scholars also exhibit intellectual curiosity and a commitment to both their local and global communities.

The Belk Scholarship provides comprehensive funding plus special opportunity stipends that allow great flexibility in the on- and off-campus experiences scholars choose to explore. Those experiences, paired with our academic programs, deepen students' insight, maturity and understanding of global issues.鈥嬧嬧嬧嬧
