Robert Walter "Bob" Scott (June 13, 1929 – January 23, 2009) was the Democratic governor of the state of North Carolinamarker from 1969 to 1973. He was born in Haw River, North Carolinamarker.

The son of North Carolina Governor W. Kerr Scott, and grandson and nephew of state legislators, Scott was a dairy farmer before being elected to the post of Lieutenant Governor in 1964 and that of Governor in 1968. In May 1969, during his term as Governor, racial violence at North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University, a predominately black campus in Greensboro, resulted in one student death, and the injury of a National Guardsman, five Greensboro police officers and two students.

Constitutionally barred from seeking another term, he later served as co-chairman of the Appalachian Regional Commission and as President of the North Carolina Community College System, from 1983 until 1995. Scott unsuccessfully ran for Governor in 1980, but lost in the Democratic primary.

His daughter, Meg Scott Phipps, was elected North Carolina's commissioner of agriculture in 2001.

Scott was honored in 2008 by the North Carolina Society for preserving state archives and historic artifacts and his efforts to increase awareness of the state's history.
