EAST GREENSBORO, N.C. (Sept. 26, 2023) – North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University has announced its newest cohort of Cheatham-White Scholarship recipients, representing some of the highest-achieving students among members of the class of 2027.
The 15 scholars hail from North Carolina, with the others from Georgia, Texas, Virginia, Michigan and New Jersey.
“The Cheatham-White Scholars of 2027 bring not only their exceptional talents but also their commitment to positive change,” said Margaret I. Kanipes, Ph.D., N.C. A&T Honors College dean. “Their presence is a beacon of hope and promise, lighting the way for a brighter future in our academic community.  We are delighted that they have chosen N.C. A&T as their home.”
The Cheatham-White Scholarship, established in 2018, is named for Henry P. Cheatham and George H. White, two African Americans who represented North Carolina in the United States Congress around the turn of the 20th century. From difficult beginnings – Cheatham was born enslaved, and White, the son of a mother whom historians say was also likely enslaved – each worked hard to earn a university education before launching careers in teaching, law and ultimately public service.
The scholarship is a fully funded four-year award that covers the costs of tuition, student fees, housing, meals, textbooks, a laptop computer, supplies, travel and personal expenses. It also provides four summers of fully funded enrichment and networking opportunities that may include international travel and study. It is a truly complete award designed to recognize academic achievement and potential at the highest levels.
