Charles I. Dover initiated the Dover Foundation Scholarship Program in 1968. Dover Foundation Scholarship recipients have the opportunity to attend Gardner-Webb University or any other accredited college or university. The total annual allotment for scholarships has increased from $2,000 at inception to $150,000 today. The Dover Foundation has been privileged to make these awards to many meritorious scholars.
Seniors from Burns, Crest, Kings Mountain and Shelby High Schools can apply for the Dover Foundation Scholarship through their senior guidance counselor.
