During ceremonies commemorating Carolina’s 224th birthday on Oct. 12, Chancellor Carol L. Folt announced a new round of named scholarships to honor people whose work, advocacy and personal example helped forge a more inclusive, unified and aspirational Carolina community.
Those selected will have their names placed on some of the University’s need-based grants and fellowships. The honor is intended also to motivate students to succeed in their own personal journeys.
Bridge Builders follows a similar initiative announced on University Day 2016 — the naming of 21 scholarships for Noteworthy Firsts, people who helped break down barriers and pave the way for others at Carolina.
Nominations are being accepted through Oct. 31.
