The University will welcome 25 scholars — all aspiring to careers in the sciences — this fall into the inaugural Chancellor’s Science Scholars Program.
The incoming cohort includes 17 scholars from North Carolina. The first-year students were chosen from the top 10 percent of the more than 15,000 Early Action applicants; the 87 finalists who were interviewed averaged an SAT math score of 721 (31 ACT) and an average GPA of 4.733.
Modeled after the nationally recognized Meyerhoff Scholars Program at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County, the Chancellor’s Science Scholars Program provides a head start for superb students of diverse backgrounds, including first-generation college students and students of color.
The program is open to admitted first-year students at UNC who are committed to increasing the contingent of underrepresented populations in the sciences and helping the U.S. meet its most pressing challenges.
The program begins with an accelerated six-week residential experience this summer.
