Submit a request to get more information on the Anthony Foxx Scholars Program.
Every African American male who graduates from West Charlotte High School and enrolls at Central Piedmont Community College will receive a $1,000 scholarship.* The Anthony Foxx Scholars Program was established and funded by a grant from the C.D. Spangler Foundation of Charlotte, N.C.
In an effort to assist African American male students with their transition to college, CPCC will provide the following support services:
• West Charlotte Enrollment Specialist
A CPCC representative will visit West Charlotte High School weekly to provide students with information on admissions and programs offered by CPCC.
• Early Advising/Registration Program
CPCC will implement an early advising and registration program to allow students to register for summer and fall classes while still in high school. Find out more about the College Connection Program.

• College Visitation Day
CPCC will provide visitation days for the scholars to tour the campus and learn more about CPCC.
