OASES Celebrates Record Number of Scholarships
Often nontraditional students face challenges beyond those of college-aged students as they begin or return to college. Scholarships are one way to overcome the financial barrier, and 2015 was a record-setting year for the Office of Adult Students and Evening Services. This year, OASES awarded nearly $150,000 in scholarships to 78 students. The recipients and donors recently attended a luncheon to celebrate this milestone.
Tina McEntire, associate provost for enrollment management, congratulated the recipients and expressed appreciation to the individuals and organizations that provided the much-needed support. She noted that the University continues to enroll greater numbers of first-year and transfer students with nearly 75 percent of undergraduates in need of financial aid.
"Interest in UNC Charlotte is at an unprecedented level, with record numbers of applicants and new enrolled students who have stronger academic backgrounds and who are more diverse than ever," said McEntire. "OASES continues to serve our nontraditional population, and thanks to the generous support of our donors, these students are on the way to achieving their degrees."
