About the Organization
Kevin and Linnie Carter established Carter Scholars Inc. on Feb. 22, 2011. The nonprofit organization provides financial assistance to elementary school, middle school, high school and college students who live in Virginia, North Carolina and Pennsylvania (states in which the Carters have lived). The assistance will be awarded to academically-gifted students who are struggling financially.
A lack of money should never be a barrier for students not having access to the academic tools that they need to be successful. The Carters want to provide deserving students who cannot afford school uniforms, school supplies, textbooks and college tuition with an opportunity to succeed. Therefore, they created Carter Scholars Inc. to assist these students with financing their education.
