Who we are

 

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

 

This year is the 34th year of operation of the Student Scholarship Program.  Over the history of the program we have distributed more than $1,000,000 in scholarship funds, helping almost 500 students pursue their higher education goals. 

How Students Are Selected 

Students must be Transylvania County residents and they receive awards based on merit and need.

Blue Ridge Community College and Brevard College students apply through their Financial Aid Offices.

Graduating Seniors at Brevard, Rosman, and Davidson River High Schools apply through their Counselors' offices.
