The World Affairs Council of Charlotte is pleased to announce the Council Scholar Award Program for the 2017-2018 school year.

The applicant must be a K-12 grade teacher or staff member with significant student contact in a Mecklenburg, Iredell, Cabarrus, Lincoln, Gaston or Union County school (public or independent schools).
Applications must be received by 4 pm on Tuesday, Oct. 31st, 2017. They may be emailed (PDF or Word file), mailed or hand delivered to our office.
