The scholarship was created by Darlena Moore, a former foster youth and named in honor of her foster parents, Richard and Mary Gilbert of Asheville. The Gilberts changed the lives of hundreds of children in foster care and guided Moore through the college process. The scholarship is need-based and awarded yearly to a student in the Fostering Bright Futures program.
