Carson Scholars are individuals in grades 4-11 who display outstanding academic achievement (at least a 3.75 GPA) and humanitarian qualities. According to the CSF, they are “students who excel academically and selflessly give of themselves, their time, and their talents to others.”
The CSF reports that, after 25 years of recognizing and rewarding students in grades 4-11 who embrace high levels of academic achievement and community service, the organization is thrilled to award its 10,000th $1,000 scholarship this year.
The 2021 Carson Scholars will be honored and recognized at festivities this fall.
