“The Darius “DJ” Dawson Memorial Scholarship was established in 2021 to honor the life of Darius J. Dawson and to continue his legacy of excellence, generosity, and service. With your support we plan to establish an ongoing scholarship in the form of an endowment at North Carolina A&T State University.” – Chaz L. Dawson

Darius was a graduate of E.E. Smith High School (Fayetteville, NC) and earned a Bachelor of Science in Sports Science and Fitness Management at North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University. While at NC A&T he excelled in academics while being a student-athlete and member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Beta Epsilon Chapter.

Darius’s family and friends wish to assist future NC A&T students in their educational pursuits, inspiring them to positively impact the lives of others, just like Darius did.
