Dare County, North Carolina — College of The Albemarle (COA) Foundation and the Virginia Dare Business and Professional Woman’s Club are excited to announce the formation of an endowed scholarship called the “Rae Eley Endowed Scholarship.”
The Rae Eley Endowed Scholarship was established with a gift of $25,444. The scholarship will provide assistance for a female COA student, aged 25 or older, who resides in Dare, Currituck, Tyrrell, Hyde, Camden or Pasquotank County. The student applicant must maintain a 2.5 grade-point average and preference will be given to women who are, or will be, enrolled in undergraduate degree or certificate programs.
“The club and I had a lot of questions concerning the transfer of scholarship funds to COA, but Amy Alcocer with the COA Foundation was always available to explain the process and ease our minds,” shared Emily Gould, treasurer of the Virginia Dare Business and Woman’s Club. “The Virginia Dare Business and Professional Woman’s Club is pleased and proud to be partnering with the COA Foundation to provide scholarships for women in our area.”
