Derek Davis was a husband, father of four, devoted man of faith, an incredible runner, and a wonderful person with a generous heart possessed by few in this world. Tragically, Derek left this world on April 27th, 2015 from injuries sustained after being hit by a car while on an early morning run with his wife, Amanda. However, his story doesn’t end there. On April 30th, 2015, Derek inspired hundreds of people (most of whom did not know him) to complete a tribute run to the site of the accident. It was there the runners dropped flowers, shoes, shirts, pictures and signs to honor Derek’s spirit.

Dooley Scholarship is available to high school students who are about to embark on their college career, as well as students currently pursuing their bachelor’s or master’s degrees.

The Centennial Scholars program is named as such in recognition of the College of Textiles’ 100 year anniversary at NC State University. Due in large part to the North Carolina Textile Foundation, a private foundation originally comprised of textile companies based in North Carolina, approximately 30 scholarships will be awarded to freshmen entering the College of Textiles each year. Of these 30 scholarships, those with the greatest value will be our Centennial Scholarships. We will award up to ten Centennial Scholarships per year.
Up to eight of our Centennial Scholarships are valued at $60,000 ($15,000/year for four years). These scholarships will cover approximately 70% of the basic in-state costs of attending NC State University and approximately 40% of the basic out-of-state costs of attending NC State University. One component that makes this scholarship program unique is that each Centennial Scholar will also have access to a $7,500 enrichment fund. The enrichment fund is designed to provide funding for our Scholars to participate in a variety of leadership, language immersion, career exploration and international Textile-related programs that will complement their study of Textiles.
Beginning in 2014, we introduced a new category of Centennial Scholarship known as the Distinguished Centennial Scholarship. Currently, we will award two of these new scholarships each year…the ITT/Roger Milliken Centennial Scholarship that is valued at $22,000/year and the W. Duke Kimbrell Centennial Scholarship which is valued at $20,000/year, making these new scholarships full scholarships for in-state students and 70% full scholarships for out-of-state students!
Nominee(s) should have an interest in and a willingness to enter one of our top-rated Textile degree programs at NC State (https://textiles.ncsu.edu/). Please note that any of your graduating students who attended our summer programs (STEP or Polymer Camp) this past summer are automatically nominated for the Centennial Scholarship.

Academic scholarships are based on school and Scouting participation, academic performance, and financial need. Applicants must score a minimum 1800 SAT (if taken before January, 2016), 1290 (if taken after March, 2016), or 28 ACT to apply.

Cooke scholarships are awarded annually and include four $25,000 scholarships (payable at $6,250 per year) and one $48,000 scholarship (up to $12,000 payable for four years), plus a varying number of others.

The Wendy’s® High School Heisman® Scholarship was created by Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas in 1994.
