The Wilmington Kiwanis Club Scholarship at CFCC is open to students in any program of study that meet a minimum grade point average requirement. Each year the scholarship is awarded to one first-year student and one second-year student. Kiwanis scholarships at Cape Fear Community College and UNC Wilmington are funded by proceeds from the Kiwanis Pancake Day in November.
The Wilmington Kiwanis Club was officially chartered in 1920 with 105 charter members. In 1964 the Wilmington Kiwanis Club began a scholarship program for worthy students at the University of North Carolina Wilmington and in 1997 at Cape Fear Community College. Over $175,000 of scholarship gifts have assisted deserving students.
