The Levine Scholars Program is UNC Charlotte’s premier merit scholarship. The program invites the brightest, most capable students to UNC Charlotte and gives them the tools, resources and support they need to explore the world around them, engage deeply in their communities and excel across disciplines.

The award provides Levine Scholars with full tuition, room, board, a grant to implement a service or outreach project in partnership with a local nonprofit, and four distinctive summer experiences that will develop leadership skills, social awareness and a global perspective. The current total value of this four-year package is estimated at over $115,000 for in-state students and over $172,000 for out-of-state students.

The Scholars value the benefits of rigorous academic programs at the state’s only urban research university. UNC Charlotte is noted for its innovative interdisciplinary programs and opportunities for undergraduate student research. To complement classroom learning, Levine Scholars participate in rich and varied opportunities in the vibrant commercial and cultural center of Charlotte, North Carolina, the state’s largest metropolitan region.

Civic engagement is at the core of the Levine Scholars Program. Through a commitment to ongoing volunteerism, internships with local nonprofits, grant projects with community partners, and customized curricula, Levine Scholars graduate fully prepared to begin their next chapter as versatile intellects, thoughtful leaders, and compassionate humanitarians.
