“I felt the scholarship funding allowed me to explore more of what the University offered beyond the classroom and put me in touch with people who helped me have a full and vibrant experience while in school.”
The Office of Fellowships & Scholar Programs is the home base for Carolina, Stamps Carolina, McNair, Hamilton and Horseshoe Scholars. Here they are provided advisement and support on a full and vibrant array of high-impact opportunities that distinguish them in their pursuit of national fellowships, internship placements, acceptance to graduate schools, and employment. Our scholars view their funding as an opportunity, not simply a reward for academic achievement. And they are among some of the most giving, spirited and appreciative students at Carolina.
Clayton Buckaloo, Stamps Carolina Scholar sophomore from Charleston, South Carolina; majoring in International Business:
“When I discovered and seized the opportunity to travel to China with the Confucius Institute, I was able to merge my curiosity for wold cultures, interest in international business, and unyielding desire to have a personal experience in China. I realized that in order to begin to understand China, I have to learn about the Chinese people. Traveling is learing about the people. This generation is one of world citizens, of which I am thrilled to get to know. Our scholars have no limits in pursuing their dreams.”
Our scholars have no limits in pursuing their dreams.
