TESC Basketball Scholarship Program

Central EMC annually awards two Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships to local students in Chatham, Harnett, Lee, Moore or Randolph counties.  Usually a young man is selected to attend the Carolina Basketball School at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, and one young lady wins a scholarship to attend the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp at N.C. State University in Raleigh.

At camp, students work directly with the staff to learn basketball skills, leadership and teamwork. To be eligible to apply, students must be in the sixth or seventh grade during the upcoming school year, have permission from a parent or guardian to attend the overnight camp and must provide their own transportation if selected to attend. Applicants will be judged on academics, extra-curricular activities and an essay.

The deadline for applications to 2024 camps has passed. Please be sure to check back in January 2025 for information on applying for a scholarship to next year's camps. For more information on the scholarships, contact Ryley Osentoski at (919) 708-1639 or
