Attracting top talent
Because UNC is a selective university, competition for merit-based awards is very strong. Recipients must demonstrate impressive academic and extracurricular achievements and show promise of engagement in the life of the University.
There is no separate application for merit-based scholarships at UNC (except for the Morehead-Cain and Robertson), as selection is based on the admissions application – scholarship candidates will be notified after they have been admitted. 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 $10,000 annually up to the full cost of attendance.
Scholarships benefit the entire campus
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. An invitation to the UNC Scholars Program isn’t a reward for what students have already done — it’s an investment in the creativity and energy we expect in the years ahead.
