Scholarships

Scholarship Program


The Kiwanis Club of Topsail Island Area, continuing its long standing commitment to the young people of Onslow County, has awarded Key Club Scholarships in the amount of $3,000 each to graduating seniors at Dixon High School. ​​These scholarship awards recognize academic achievement and service. Funding for these scholarships comes from fund-raising activities conducted throughout the year by the Kiwanis Club of Topsail Island Area and the Topsail Island Kiwanis Foundation working jointly to award these scholarships. Beginning in 2019, the Topsail Kiwanis Club of Hampstead assumed sole responsibility of Key Club Scholarships for Topsail High School​.


The Topsail Island Area Kiwanis Club members also contribute directly to our scholarship fund through the foundation with voluntary donations to recognize their birthday and anniversary each year. Typically, members donate one dollar for their age in years as well as one dollar to honor each year of their marriage or rememberance of their anniversary. 
Checks for the scholarship fund should be made payable to: Topsail Island Kiwanis Foundation
