St. Luke’s Scholarship Since 1999 St. Luke’s has awarded an annual scholarship to aid and assist people who desire to continue their education but who cannot because of their economic situation. The $1,000.00 scholarship is for those wanting to pursue an under-graduate degree or certification in a designated curriculum of no less than two semesters. Available to any resident of Buncombe County who has been accepted by a post-secondary institution accredited by the United States Department of Education, the scholarship is intended for both high school seniors and adults wishing to seek a degree.
