About This Activity

What is Cherokee Scholars? Originally called ADay for Reinhardt, the Cherokee Scholars at Reinhardt program is an annual effort to provide support for Cherokee County students attending Reinhardt University.  The Cherokee Scholars program helps fund the University’s Cherokee County Grant Program, which provides eligible students the opportunity to receive as much as $8,000 during their four years at Reinhardt University. More than $5 million in scholarships have been awarded to deserving local students.
