Ashe County Chamber of Commerce Scholarships
Each year, the Chamber, through its 501(c)(3) non-profit, the Ashe County Advantage Project, awards deserving Ashe County students with scholarships for post-secondary education. Seniors from the Ashe County High School, Ashe Early College, and homeschooled students are eligible to apply. Priority is given to applicants interested in working in a rural community following graduation.
Selection committees interview finalists for the various Chamber scholarships before naming the winners. In 2021, the Ashe Advantage Project awarded nine deserving students with scholarships worth a combined total of $20,000.
