Welcome to the Garinger Education Foundation (GEF) Scholarship Programs page for 2022 Garinger High School (GHS) students and parents and for GHS grads from past ten years who are interested in earning a college degree or professional certification! Each year GEF offers multiple 4-year scholarships to members of the graduating class at GHS. Some of these scholarships are included in a collaboration with UNC-Charlotte (UNCC) combining GEF scholarships and Road to Hire (R2H) tuition scholarships with UNCC and Federal and NC grant/scholarship funding to offer awardees full in-state cost-of-attendance financial packages. In partnership with the Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC), GEF offers a joint scholarship program for GHS graduates. Plus, we have transfer scholarships for GHS grads attending CPCC and transferring to colleges in the University of North Carolina system. Check out all these programs here!
