The NCSCLS Student Scholarship Fund was established May 8, 1965. The purpose of this fund is to encourage qualified students to pursue courses of study in accredited colleges, universities, community colleges and technical institutes which lead to careers in the clinical laboratory professions.
Student must be enrolled in or accepted into a NAACLS-accredited Clinical Laboratory Science (CLS) or Clinical Laboratory Technician (CLT) program in North Carolina. Awards are conferred on one-year-cycles. Applications must be submitted each year to receive consideration for an award in that yearly cycle. A CLS student is eligible to receive scholarship support for three years. A CLT student is eligible to receive scholarship support for two years. (If a student progresses from the CLT level to the CLS level, the total support shall not exceed three years.) Applicants are judged on financial need, demonstrated scholastic ability and personal motivation and achievement.
