4.NINER K raises funds for needs-based scholarships

Join UNC Charlotte Saturday, October 22, 2011 for the third annual 4.NINER K scholarship fund-raising event. Run or walk your way through this challenging and family-friendly 4.9K course, located throughout the beautiful UNC Charlotte campus. All race proceeds will be used to fund need-based scholarships for current students. After the race, stay for FREE food, entertainment, awards, and fun activities!

Why are we doing this now?

Last year, more than 70 percent of UNC Charlotte students received some type of financial assistance to help pay their educational expenses, the number of financial aid applications for this year has increased almost 6 percent over last year’s numbers and over 20 percent from two years ago. The dire economic situation has had the dual effect of increasing the need of financial aid for our students while decreasing the University’s capacity to provide assistance.
