pre-rendezblue Scholarships

Scholarships are available for registered students participating in the Wilderness Experience, CSI: Community Service Involvement, and It's Easy Being Green programs through the Karpinos Scholarship Fund. Students may apply for either the needs-based or service-based scholarship. Scholarships may be full or partial.

Karpinos Need-Based Scholarship Application

This application is for students who wish to participate in pre-rendezblue but find the registration fee prohibitive. Please be thoughtful and complete in your responses as this is a competitive scholarship.

We will ask Financial Aid for a need report on those who apply for the Need-Based application. We will be reviewing the level of anticipated unmet financial need as a factor in determining these scholarship recipients.

Karpinos Service-Based Scholarship Application

This application is for students who have shown exemplary community service in their home communities. Please be thoughtful and complete in your responses as this is a competitive scholarship.

Scholarship awards impact your Financial Aid package. If you are scheduled to receive Financial Aid in the upcoming academic year, check with the Financial Aid Office to determine the impact this scholarship could have on your package.

To complete the scholarship application and registration process:

  1. Register for Wilderness Experience, CSI: Community Service Involvement, or It's Easy Being Green via their respective links provided above.

  3. Follow up by notifying prerend@unca.edu that you are interested in the scholarship.
