UNC Royals Application: Apply Today (Deadline is March 27)

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 2020-21 academic year at UNC (December 2021 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.

All applicants must submit a complete application including 1) contact information, 2) a resume, 3) original service project concept, 4) one letter of recommendation, 5) an official, sealed transcript or an unofficial transcript, and 6) acknowledgement of and agreement to all proclamations outlined in the application. Incomplete or late applications will not be accepted or considered.

Once you hit submit on your application, all UNC Royalty candidates must contact UNC Royalty Chair Miota Allen ’21 at to virtually meet prior to March 30 to ensure understanding of the election process.
