Locally, we support high school and UNCW students with three scholarships awarded annually: the Ann Sherman Skiba Memorial Scholarship, the Coastal Carolina UNA Scholarship, and the Yolanda Norwood Memorial Scholarship. We also support the UNCW chapter of the Model United Nations Association (MUNA) and the UNCW chapter of the UNA. Your membership and active participation in our chapter goes a long way to helping local students!
The Yolanda Norwood Memorial Scholarship was created in memory of Yolanda Norwood, Vice-President of the North Carolina Chapter of UN Women and a member of the Board of the Coastal Carolina United Nations Association. This scholarship is to be granted annually in the amount of $300 to support one UNCW student on the basis of merit.

Interested students are invited to email, by March 1, an application, essay, and transcript (unofficial is fine) to: Amanda Boomershine, President, Coastal Carolina United Nations Association.
