Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships
Lace-up those sneakers, basketball fans! Each year, North Carolina's Touchstone Energy Cooperatives accept applications from middle-school students for all-expense-paid scholarships to summer basketball camps at the University of North Carolina and N.C. State University.
Young men can apply to attend the Carolina Basketball School in Chapel Hill, and young women can vie for a spot at the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp in Raleigh. More than 50 scholarships will be awarded to students statewide.
To be eligible to apply, students must be a current sixth or seventh grader at a qualifying school in North Carolina. Applicants will be judged on their academics, extra-curricular activities and an essay that must accompany the application.
Apply for a Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarship:
Each Touchstone Energy cooperative in the state awards two scholarships to students in their local area, one to a young man and one to a young woman, each year. The scholarships send 26 young women to N.C. State University Women's Basketball Camp in Raleigh and 26 young men to the Carolina Basketball Camp at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Both camps are held in the summer, and campers will work closely with the college coaches and camp staff to develop fundamental skills, helping the young athletes perform and excel both on and off the court. Campers will stay in dorms overnight during the camp sessions and must provide their own transportation to and from camp.
The Touchstone Energy Sports Camp scholarship program provides a unique educational and athletic opportunity for our state’s youth and demonstrates Touchstone Energy’s core values of accountability, integrity, innovation and particularly, commitment to the community.
