Accepting selection to Governor’s School obliges the school/school system for the non-refundable $500 per student tuition payment. However, schools/school systems can decide how to access these funds; some pay from within their own budgets or other sources, while others may require families to contribute. The local official Governor’s School Contact Person will discuss this with selected students/families. If a family is required to pay the entire $500 and finds this challenging, the North Carolina Governor’s School Foundation has a generous need-based scholarship program; visit The application deadline is March 28. If the school/school system covers part or all tuition costs, the scholarship program is not applicable.
