The Wilson Scholars Program, Appalachian State University’s premier scholarship program, embodies the true Appalachian spirit: a rich blend of academic excellence, leadership and service.
This scholarship program attracts passionate individuals, instills in them a commitment to change the world and provides the resources for them to think creatively, strategically and collaboratively. It was established in 2013 with a generous gift by 1975 Appalachian alumni Carole and Brad Wilson.
Students represent a variety of majors and disciplines — from business and science, to the arts and humanities.
