Connestee Falls is a vibrant community in Brevard, North Carolina, that cares about the students in Transylvania County.  


This year is the 35th year of operation of the Student Scholarship Program.  Over the history of the program, we have distributed more than $1,300,000 in scholarship funds, helping almost 600 students pursue their higher education goals. 

In 1987, the first year of the Connestee Falls Student Scholarship Program, the founders had one simple goal: Raise enough money for one college scholarship for one student.


Our Mission

The mission of the Connestee Falls Student Scholarship Program is to provide scholarship funds for deserving students of Transylvania County. Scholarships shall be awarded by the educational institutions based on merit and financial need.
