An Extraordinary Pathway to Success
After graduation, Goodnight Scholars Christian Williams and Oscar Molina are heading in different directions: vet school at the College of Veterinary Medicine and a role at Deutsche Bank. Both of these next steps were made possible through the Goodnight Scholars Program’s transfer pathway, created in 2017 to provide extraordinary opportunities for community college graduates across North Carolina.

Amanda Maxwell chose to attend the College of Veterinary Medicine not just for its reputation, but for its equally strong community. With support from faculty, classmates and donors, she is ready for the next step in her career as a laboratory animal veterinarian.
Commissioned for Success
Receiving the Textile Military Scholarship didn't just enhance Garrett Welsh's NC State experience – it served as a vote of a confidence in his abilities and confirmation that his work in the classroom and as a member of the Naval ROTC hadn't gone unnoticed. He'll soon be applying the skills he learned in college to a career in the Navy.
Goodnight Scholar Alex Rojas ’20 is applying skills developed in the scholarship program to an internship at BioMedomics, where he leads a team assembling and shipping out boxes of rapid COVID-19 tests.
