The Park Scholars

Park Scholars hail from across North Carolina and the United States. They pursue degrees in a wide variety of academic majors, and many pursue minors or dual degrees. (For more details about current/recent classes of Park Scholars, see the 2014-2015 Annual Report.)

Upon arrival at NC State, Park Scholars are immediately introduced to professors who will challenge them to push the limits of scholarship, leadership, and service in their own lives and in the lives of others. In addition to working individually on academic and professional activities of personal interest, the Park Scholars engage in several team and class endeavors during their four years at NC State. They are creative, smart, motivated, service-oriented, and participate in a wide array of extracurricular activities, including student government, varsity and intramural athletics, fraternities and sororities, academic and cause-related clubs, entrepreneurial ventures, and arts organizations.

The Park Scholarship is a stepping stone to success. Park Scholars have received numerous accolades for academic work, leadership potential, and service endeavors, including the following honors and distinctions:

Nationally Competitive Scholarships

National Honor Societies
