The Solomon Family Scholarship

Mr. T.J. Solomon has established the scholarship fund to promote equity in the education of students at Gaston College. Mr. Solomon received his B.A. from Coe College and earned a J.D. from the University of South Carolina School of Law. He served as a Judge Advocate in the United States Air Force from 1975 to 1980. In addition to his career as an attorney, he has served various community organizations in Gaston County. Scholarships distributed from this Fund may only be awarded to recent graduates who have achieved a minimum high school GPA of 3.0, or a College GPA of 2.5, for current students. Financial need is not a requirement for this scholarship but may be considered. The applicant must be enrolled full-time in a curriculum program. Preference is given to students from populations that are unrepresented in their field of study. Scholarships are not renewable for a second year.
