I knew I was witnessing the transformative power of the Flagler Scholarship first hand!” said Dean Goldey. Freshman attend the outdoor leadership program Outward Bound, Sophomores complete a non-profit internship, Juniors complete a for-profit internship and Seniors study abroad. Flagler Scholars receive tuition, room and board coverage and enrichment programs. Established by the William R. Kenan Jr. Charitable Trust, these selective awards are for students who exhibit outstanding leadership, scholarship, courage, integrity, and vigor.
