NC State University is pleased to announce its 27th class of Park Scholars, which includes 42 students representing nine states and 20 North Carolina counties. Established in 1996, the Park Scholarships program brings exceptional students to NC State based on outstanding accomplishments and potential in scholarship leadership, service and character. The program provides a four-year scholarship valued at approximately $116,000 for in-state students and $208,000 for out-of-state students.

“Every day, Park Scholars make a positive difference for others,” said Eva Feucht, director of the Park Scholarships program. “At NC State, Park Scholars receive a world-class education while developing their potential in scholarship, leadership, service, and character. The talented Park Scholars of the Class of 2026 join a vibrant network of 162 students on campus and more than 1,000 Park alumni around the world.” 

As recipients of one of the most prestigious and comprehensive undergraduate scholarships in the nation, the incoming class of Park Scholars will have access to opportunities for innovative enrichment activities such as grants for undergraduate research and study abroad. 

The Park Scholarships program is named for the late Roy H. Park ’31, an NC State alumnus who created the charitable Park Foundation which is dedicated to education, media, and the environment. The Park Foundation has committed nearly $150 million to support the scholarship since launching it with an initial grant in 1996.
