There are two means to support Miss North Carolina as a Sponsor. Supporting our Scholarship Fund and Supporting our Awards Package.


Miss North Carolina scholarships are funded by the NC Educational Scholarship Fund, Inc, a federally recognized 501c3 non-profit organization.

The Miss North Carolina Organization announced on February 16, 2016 the addition of three new scholarships available to contestants competing in the 2016 Miss North Carolina Pageant.  Five $1,000 STEM scholarships will be made available, in addition to a $1,000 scholarship for a contestant pursing a career as a teacher and a $1,000 scholarship for a contestant pursing a degree in the vocal performance/music education field.  To find further information about these opportunities, please click here:  Designated Scholarship Application
