Due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision not to offer the Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships this year. This long-standing program typically provides full scholarships for middle school students to attend overnight summer basketball camp at North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Middle school students at qualifying schools are encouraged to apply for a scholarship to attend camp in summer 2022. Applicants will be judged on their academics, extracurricular activities and an essay. The application period will begin on Sept. 1, 2021 with a final deadline of March 31, 2022. To learn more about this program and its impact on local youth, visit NC Electric Cooperative.
Piedmont Electric, along with North Carolina’s other Touchstone Energy Cooperatives, award middle-school students full scholarships to attend basketball camp on college campuses each summer. The Touchstone Energy Sports Camps program provides a unique educational and athletic opportunity for our state’s youth and demonstrates Touchstone Energy’s core values of accountability, integrity, innovation and particularly, commitment to community. Piedmont Electric will award scholarships to one boy and one girl.
Rising sixth graders are eligible to apply for the Roy Williams Basketball Camp.
Rising sixth through eighth graders are eligible to apply for the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp.
To be eligible, applications must be postmarked by the deadline. Statewide, Touchstone Energy cooperatives will send more than 50 students to camp this summer.
