Marty C. Blackmon Memorial Direct Aid Scholarship

In loving memory of Marty C. Blackmon, a member of the Adult and Online Education team who made a difference in the lives of all of our students, this direct aid scholarship supports Adult and Online students with a stipend. 

Our theme for 2024 is “Perseverance”. The 2024 application is closed.  The 2025 cycle will open early 2025.

This scholarship is open to any AOE student (home campus of Online, Raleigh, Camp Lejeune, or Fort Liberty & Pope) who is currently enrolled in classes or has been enrolled in the 2023-24 academic year (September 2023 – May 2024) with at least 9 credits left in their degree program.

Thank you to all our donors who have supported this fund.  We appreciate the direct impact you are having on our students’ lives.
