The Theresa Hooks Memorial STEM Scholarship is an endowed scholarship managed by the North Carolina Community Foundation (NCCF)  Contributions are invested to ensure the scholarship retains its value in perpetuity, and the scholarships created by the endowment are funded through the income generated by the endowment.

The NCCF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, so all gifts are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

We are happy to announce that the 2018 award will total $2500 for one graduating Eastern Alamance High School senior pursuing a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) field of study at a four-year university.  Our goal is to steadily increase the endowed fund through donations so that we may increase the yearly award and/or increase the number of awardees.  Your donation to the Theresa Hooks Memorial STEM Scholarship will go a long way in helping us reach this goal.  We greatly appreciate your support!
