Burlington Foundation Scholarship Endowment Fund

The Burlington Foundation Scholarship Endowment Fund was initiated with a gift of $1,000 in 1992 from Burlington Industries, Inc. Despite numerous changes in the company, particularly the acquisition of Burlington Industries by International Textile Group, the fund has substantially grown and has provided our students with scholarships for over two decades.

In the late nineties, Burlington Industries and Johnston Community College partnered to develop an Adult Learning Center at the Burlington Plant in Smithfield. Although Burlington Industries no longer maintains a facility in Smithfield, JCC students are still benefiting from the company’s generosity.
