Chancellor's Fellows Program

Background information

Established in 2014, the Chancellor’s Fellowship provides a unique opportunity for talented graduating seniors interested in a career in public service to explore and understand the inner workings of a higher education institution.

In past years, fellows have had regular interaction with senior leadership and were assigned to projects both within the Office of the Chancellor and in other units across the University. The 2018-2019 Chancellor’s Fellows worked with the Office of University Development, UNC Global, the Three Zeros Environmental Initiative and the Carolina Center for Public Service.

The Chancellor’s Fellows program is returning for the 2020-2021 year with a new partnership in the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost. Fellows will have the opportunity to explore the policies, practices and operations of a large research university. In a project-based format, fellows will complete three four-month rotations focused on pan-university initiatives such as Carolina Next: Innovations for Public Good, the Commission on History, Race and A Way Forward, Modernizing Student Support, the Tar Heel Bus Tour, and Operational Excellence. The Chancellor’s Fellows will also work collaboratively supporting various functions in the Office of the Chancellor and Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost.

The Chancellor’s Fellowship is a full-time, one-year position with salary and benefits beginning in June 2020. Applicants must be a member of the graduating class of December 2019 or May 2020. Fellows interact with a variety of Carolina constituencies including senior officers, faculty, staff, students, alumni and community members, and have many opportunities for personal growth and career development.

Chancellor's Science Scholars

The Chancellor’s Science Scholars program provides financial and academic support to encourage talented underrepresented students to pursue Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degrees in science and mathematics. Through the program, scholars are immersed in research opportunities early in their Carolina careers, both on and off campus.

The Chancellor’s Science Scholars program is based in the College of Arts and Sciences and is modeled after the nationally recognized Meyerhoff Scholars Program at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County.

Learn more about the Chancellor’s Science Scholars Program and how to become a scholar at the Chancellor’s Science Scholar website.

Student Advisory Committee to the Chancellor

The Student Advisory Committee to the Chancellor is a forum for student leaders to identify issues, challenges, and successes relevant to the student body and the University, and work collaboratively and strategically with the Chancellor and University leadership about how to best address them.
