By crowning UNC Royals, the student body votes to showcase two seniors who exemplify scholarship, leadership and service, the pillars of the Carolina Way. The “Royals” then each complete a self-generated service project in which they based their election platform upon. The projects, funded by the UNC General Alumni Association, work to better the University and the greater Chapel Hill-Carrboro community.
All applicants for UNC Royals must be full‐time students with senior standing for the duration of the 2021-22 academic year at UNC (Dec. 2022 graduates are ineligible to run).
Applicants must have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5.
Applicants may be endorsed by an officially recognized UNC student organization, see full list. Should a student organization choose to endorse candidates, they may only endorse one candidate. Please note that it is not an official requirement to be endorsed by a student organization. This is strictly optional and no points will be assessed against any candidate who is not endorsed.
