Robert H. Short/Cumberland Community Foundation Scholars Program

CF's largest scholarship program is the Robert H. Short/Cumberland Community Foundation Scholars Program. This program is made possible by an endowment gift from the estate of Robert H. Short. A successful businessman and a brilliant investor, Short always regretted that he had not attended college. He acquired his wealth through hard work, conservative living, and a successful self-designed investment strategy. Short died at age 89 in February 2011 after a brief illness. He wanted to help kids go to college, so upon his death in 2011, CCF received a generous bequest from his estate to continue his support for students. The Robert H. Short/Cumberland Community Foundation Scholars Program is available for students attending Fayetteville State University, Fayetteville Technical Community College, and Methodist University. Students must demonstrate a strong record of school/community service and maintain a 3.0 GPA.
