Since 1994, the Association and its REALTOR® and Affiliate Members have financially supported college scholarships to worthy local high school students. The program is administered by the Outer Banks Community Foundation.
As of the 2015-16 school year, 119 students have received funding from the OBAR Scholarship Program totaling $209,631.
2012 was the first year the Stewart Couch Memorial Scholarship Fund awarded scholarships to Cape Hatteras Secondary School students.
The Association raises funds for these scholarships through community events such as the OBAR Surf Fishing Tournament, OBAR Golf Tournament and through member donations.
Your support of this worthwhile endeavor will help guarantee the continued funding of scholarships.
