Attention High School Seniors! If you live in Charlotte or attend the Leadership Academy for Young Men, you are eligible to apply!


2018 CCA Scholarship Awards Now Being Accepted!

Deadline is June 30th, 2018!


This year the Charlotte Community Association (CCA) is pleased to announce that two scholarships will be awarded to college bound students who are residents of the Charlotte community or attend the Leadership Academy for Young Men. Last year’s recipients were Sophia Cavacas, daughter of Karen and Andrew Cavacas of Kemphurst Road and Gillian Harrington, daughter of Pamela and Earl Harrington of Wyndam Road.

The Association will award one $2,000 award which is made possible through community fundraising and membership donations.

Another award of $2,000 is awarded in memory of Edward Watson, a Charlotte resident and former Charlotte High student. This award is funded from donations provided by members of the Lakeside Presbyterian Church.

The requirements for both scholarships are the same and will be coordinated by the CCA Scholarship Committee. The college bound senior must either reside in the Charlotte neighborhood and attend any school, public or private, OR attend the Leadership Academy for Young Men (formerly Charlotte High School).

For many years the Charlotte Community Association has offered scholarships to students who qualify based on academics, community service and extra-curricular activities. We are pleased to continue this tradition as well as help facilitate with the Edward Watson Scholarship.

Applications will be available for both scholarships at the Charlotte Branch Library and by clicking on the buttons at left on this CCA website. All applicants are welcome and encouraged to apply for both awards.

Please direct any questions about the application process to Brian Labigan, Scholarship Committee Chairman, at 585-943-7197, or email at
