Ten incoming first-year students at Appalachian State University have been awarded the Chancellor’s Scholarship, which covers full institutional costs for four years of study. This scholarship is Appalachian’s oldest and most academically competitive merit-based scholarship.

Local recipients included STEM Early College at N.C. A&T graduate Rebecca Brown, daughter of Kathryn and Randall Brown of High Point, and Western Guilford High School graduate Judith Espitia-Lara, daughter of Martin and Rosa Garcia of Greensboro.

Chancellor’s Scholars may be in any major program and are leaders in the Honors College at Appalachian. The scholarship offers full institutional costs for eight semesters and other academic and co-curricular benefits, including special housing and travel opportunities. Students must maintain a 3.45 minimum grade point average to renew the scholarship each year.
