Light on the Hill Society Scholarship

Are you ready for the challenge?

We are honoring the past, to cultivate the future.

Get ready to #ShareTheLightOnTheHill by participating in this year’s 24-Hour Challenge on Monday, Sept. 30. Whether it’s $1, $10, $100 or $1,000, gifts of ALL amounts make an impact.

The Light on the Hill Scholarship serves as a tribute to Carolina’s African-American graduates of the 1950s and 1960s. The fund provides scholarships to academically gifted, African-American students who attend Carolina. Be the light and be a part of something bigger.
