The Betsy Y. Justus NC TECH Founders Scholarship was established in memory of NC TECH's founding CEO. Following her passing in the summer of 2011, NC TECH launched a scholarship based on her wishes to support young women in North Carolina who are pursuing an academic and career path in the areas of Technology or Engineering. Every year, two students are selected to receive a scholarship of $1,000 per year ($4,000 for a four-year school, $2,000 for a two-year associate's degree) and a Lenovo laptop.
NC TECH opens the application in January and accepts submissions through April 1. Students are notified of awards by May 1 if selected.
