Welcome to the Levine Scholars Program

Welcome to the Levine Scholars Program

The Levine Scholars Program is UNC Charlotte’s most prestigious merit scholarship program that was established in 2009 by benefactors Sandra and Leon Levine.  The inaugural class of Levine Scholars entered in the fall semester of 2010 and a new cohort of approximately 20 students is selected to join the program each year.  Levine Scholarships are awarded to extraordinary high school seniors based on scholarship, ethical leadership and civic engagement.   

The Levine Scholarships carry a high honor, one that bestows tremendous opportunities and assumes high expectations of its recipients – as students, as leaders within the University, and as citizens of the greater global community.  No matter what their interests, Scholars find campus and community partners eager to embrace their contributions and enhance their education through hands-on experiences.  To complement classroom learning, Levine Scholars participate in rich and varied opportunities in the vibrant commercial and cultural center of Charlotte.  After four years of study, Scholars graduate fully prepared for a life of learning, service and leadership in their chosen field.
