The mission of the Centennial Scholars Program is to provide minority males with relevant academic, professional and social experiences that stimulate personal ambitions and development in academic success, mentorship, identity/self-esteem, leadership, cultural and spiritual enlightenment, community involvement, and a sense of brotherhood.
The Centennial Scholars Program at North Carolina Central University was created during the centennial celebration of North Carolina Central University.
We offer a variety of academic activities that improve NCCU minority male students’ retention and graduation rates so they may reach greater heights.
All program participants are interviewed and selected to be a part of the program the summer before their first year. All first-year and most second-year students must reside within the Centennial Scholars Program living and learning community. Exceptions are only granted on a limited basis with reference to financial hardship and county of residence.

New students are interviewed to be a part of the CSP in April through June. A complete CSP application must be completed and submitted to NCCU Centennial Scholars Program via firstname.lastname@example.org or fax at 919-530-6074.
