Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships

basketballTouchstone Energy Sports Camps Scholarships are awarded to more than 50 middle-school students in North Carolina every year to attend basketball camps on two of the state's largest college campuses.

The scholarships send 26 young women to the N.C. State University Women's Basketball Camp in Raleigh and 26 young men to the Roy Williams Basketball Camp at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Each Touchstone Energy cooperative in the state awards two scholarships to students in their local area, one to a young man and one to a young woman, each year.

Both camps are held in the summer, and campers will work closely with the championship-winning college coaches to develop fundamental skills, helping the young athletes perform and excel both on and off the court. Campers will stay in dorms overnight during the camp sessions.

The application process is open annually from January - March. Applicants can expect to be notified of results by May 1. Students must attend school in North Carolina and must be in sixth, seventh or eighth grade to be eligible to apply. Applicants will be judged on their academics, extra-curricular activities and an essay that must accompany the application.

The Touchstone Energy Sports Camp scholarship program provides a unique educational and athletic opportunity for our state’s youth and demonstrates Touchstone Energy’s core values of accountability, integrity, innovation and particularly, commitment to community.
