UNC - Chapel Hill

An Unexpected Partnership

Developing tomorrow’s leaders

Developing tomorrow’s leaders

Launched in 2000, the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program helps Carolina and Duke students reach their full potential through year-round development and leadership programming. To build community, the program also requires students to take courses at both campuses.

The core of the Robertson Scholarship’s mission is to help the students develop their leadership traits early in their careers to maximize their ability to positively impact their communities. 

“Our goal is to develop leaders who will make a transformational impact on society and communities,” said Allen Chan, the program’s executive director. “We’re looking for the students with the highest absolute potential for leadership, and what we’re trying to do is put them through a program that unlocks that potential and changes it from potential to kinetic leadership.”
