Denim has a long history in Greensboro. So does UNCG’s scholarly focus on apparel. A $2 million gift from the Blue Bell Foundation will support that focus for many decades to come. The new Blue Bell Foundation CARS Scholar Endowed Fund will support an endowed scholarship in the Department of Consumer, Apparel, and Retail Studies (CARS) in UNCG’s Bryan School of Business and Economics.

“By supporting our Spartan students in this way, the Blue Bell Foundation ensures a tradition that will provide impact for decades to come.”

Chancellor Gilliam

Starting next fall, the scholarship will be awarded to two students for four years. Two additional students will receive the scholarship each year, so that the endowment will fund eight students in total at any given time.
