About ACCC Scholarships

Since 2011, the ACCC has provided over $30,000 in scholarships to assist students in pursuing college degrees in the arts. Scholarship support is offered to qualified graduating high school seniors and students at Carteret Community College who are enrolled in arts-related curricula. Private schools, homeschooled and students attending the North Carolina School of the Arts are also eligible.

For the purpose of these scholarships “arts” are defined to encompass vocal and instrumental music education, theatre, performance, music theory, composition, dance, art history, arts education, architecture and design, creative writing, media arts, sculpture, film studies, and photography.

ACCC scholarship availability is usually announced during the early Spring of each calendar year and deadlines for the receipt of applications are typically set for the middle of April.

Students interested in applying should contact guidance counselors at Carteret County high schools, Carteret Community College or the Arts Council. Guidelines and forms are posted each year on this website.

A 501(c)3 nonprofit partner of the North Carolina Arts Council, the ACCC raises money for its scholarship program through private donations and projects dedicated solely to scholarships. Donations in support of the ACCC’s Scholarship Program are encouraged and appreciated.
