RALEIGH, N.C. (May 23, 2022) – Eighteen Wake Tech students are among 51 Goodnight Transfer Class of 2025 Scholars selected at North Carolina State University. The transfer class marks the most Wake Tech scholars selected in the program's history.
Recipients participated in a thorough selection process over the Spring semester, which included an application and an interview with a volunteer committee consisting of current and former N.C. State faculty, staff and alumni, as well as industry representatives from SAS Institute. The prestigious Goodnight Scholarship is valued at $22,000 per year for up to three years ($66,000) for transfer students from North Carolina community colleges.
The following individuals are Wake Tech's Goodnight Transfer Scholars:
The Wake Tech recipients demonstrated exceptional accomplishments during their community college career, including stellar academic achievement, memberships in national honor societies and involvement and leadership in student organizations and athletics. Wake Tech recipients include students with impressive accolades, including a principal dancer with the Carolina Ballet, a Scott Scholar – Wake Tech’s most prestigious and sought-after honor – and an undergraduate STEM research intern.
The Goodnight Scholars Program was established in 2008 by N.C. State alumni Jim and Ann Goodnight to provide financial assistance to North Carolina students from low- and middle-income families who wish to pursue STEM education at N.C. State. In 2017, the scholarship expanded to include transfer students from North Carolina community colleges who planned to enroll at N.C. State in the fall after receiving an associate degree. Now, the Goodnight Scholars Program is the largest full-time scholarship program at N.C. State, with 255 undergraduate students enrolled per year.
Since 2017, 37 Wake Tech students have been named Goodnight Transfer Scholars. The 51 recipients in the transfer class of 2025 is the largest cohort to date.
