Daija Janay Carter Memorial Scholarship Fund

On Saturday, October 14, 2006 my only child Daija Janay Carter suddenly passed away leaving me with such a huge void in my life. In trying to determine how best to honor her memory, I decided to establish a scholarship in her name, "The Daija Janay Cater Memorial Scholarship Fund" at North Carolina A&T State University. The scholarship will be used to assist a young female student from the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area who currently attends or will attend North Carolina A&T State University.

The scholarship will be awarded on or about October 14th every year in the amount of $500.00 (five hundred dollars).
