Donor Information

Private gifts to Carolina’s many scholarship opportunities can make a remarkable impact on the life of a student. Scholarships not only help us attract the best and the brightest students – from around the state and the nation – to Carolina, they are also essential to helping us keep our promise to make a first-rate Chapel Hill education financially feasible for all those who earn admission.

Thanks to the generosity of our scholarship donors, we have been able to protect the promise of a ‘University for the People’ of North Carolina. Scholarships help not only students with financial need, academic merit and great promise, but also those with whom they interact as they live, learn and grow in the classroom (and beyond) into life-long Tar Heels.

Student Impact Fund

This fund will provide emergency support for various expenses, such as housing, food, travel and technology to students who are unable to meet unexpected financial burdens.

The Office of Scholarships and Student Aid is also happy to receive and process thousands of “outside”/private scholarships awarded to individual students. Providers of private scholarships can click here for guidelines on submitting payments for your awarded student(s) to help get the support into their hands smoothly.

Providing access to the world-class opportunities that come with a Carolina education is the way we serve students. We thank you for supporting our mission!
