Goodnight Family and Goodnight Brothers Scholarships

Goodnight Brothers: Specializing in the Art of Dry Curing Hams since 1948

The Goodnight Family and Goodnight Brothers Country Ham have been longtime supporters of the Sustainable Development Department and its students, particularly those who are pursuing careers in sustainable agriculture and sustainable farm management. Their generosity makes it possible for us to offer several scholarships ranging from $500-$2000 each academic year.

These scholarships are intended to support Sustainable Development majors who meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Students who have excelled academically (GPA of 3.3 or higher at Appalachian);
  • Students with demonstrated financial need or hardship;
  • Students majoring in SD with an interest in food systems, sustainable agriculture, and related topics; OR
  • Students with demonstrated commitment to community engagement or service.
