The Goodnight Scholars Program is targeted at North Carolina residents from low- and middle-income families who aspire to major in a science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) or STEM education discipline at NC State. Transfer students accepted into the Program receive an annual scholarship valued at $19,500 per year  for three years ($58,500 total).
