Opportunity. Access. Excellence.
The UNC Scholars Program delivers the best of both worlds — the access and attention of an elite scholarship, coupled with the resources and reach of a global research university.
Awards range from $9,000 annually up to the full cost of attendance.
“We have had the pleasure of watching some of Carolina’s best and brightest become even better and brighter.” - Kelly and Brian Hogan, Faculty Mentors
With a cohort of talented classmates, exclusive events, and faculty and staff mentors, scholars enjoy the very best of the Carolina experience. From pathbreaking research to worldwide study abroad programs, UNC opens up opportunities only available at a renowned public university.
What we ask in return is simple: Lead. Invent. Debate. Teach.
Scholars make Carolina an even richer, more interesting place. Your invitation to the UNC Scholars Program isn’t a reward for what you’ve already done — it’s an investment in the creativity and energy we expect in the years ahead.
UNC Scholars are part of the intellectual and cultural life of Carolina, helping to write the next chapter in the history of this country’s first and finest public university. Be ready.
