Students applying must be in the upper 25 percent of their class and seniors who are planning to attend a four-year college or university in North Carolina.

To apply, students must submit a completed application, along with two letters of recommendation, a transcript of grades and their college entrance exam scores. In addition, applications will be asked to include a cover letter that explains their education and career goals and reason why they should receive a scholarship.

The scholarship is named after Sallie Southall Cotten, founder of the North Carolina Federation of Women’s Clubs. It is sponsored by the Junior Woman’s Club of Raleigh, a non-profit organization dedicated to the development of young women of Raleigh and to helping them improve the lives of others through community service.
