Awards Committee for Education, Inc., a foundation based in Winston-Salem, N.C., was founded in 1981 with the mission of identifying educationally talented young people in the state, honoring them through recognition, and enhancing their educational opportunities. The Committee is chiefly concerned with black or Indian students who rank in national achievement tests in the top 98-99% in math or reading or in the top 97% or greater on total testing. The Committee becomes aware of such students through nominations from principals, superintendents, teachers, guidance counselors, parents, and, occasionally, from students who have benefited from the Committee's help in the past.
The Committee has special missions aimed at finding talented seventh graders for the Talent Identification Program at Duke University and tenth graders who merit scholarships to one or another scholastic summer program in North Carolina. The Awards Committee for Education, Inc., is funded chiefly through donations, including monies received from various North Carolina industries.Back to Top
