Aggie Gentz is an alumni-based organization established in 2015 to take the true spirit of Aggie Pride & connect it with the heart of our alma mater, the alumni, to create a legacy of giving back. The mission of this scholarship is to provide need-based financial assistance to NC A&T State University students to cover their semester book & supply cost.
The Aggie Gentz Scholarship is based on financial need. Scholarships are awarded on a need basis specifically for students whose parents fall in a low-to-middle income bracket.
Scholarships will be awarded up to $1000 to be used towards the purchase of books and supplies. Scholarship funds will be paid and applied directly to the student's University bookstore account. Scholarships are awarded each semester and students will have the option to reapply. The Aggie Gentz Scholarships are awarded without regard to race, color, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation.
