The Levine Scholars Program takes the brightest, most capable students and gives them the tools, resources and environment they need to connect, transform and make a difference in the world. The four-year scholarship includes full tuition, room, board, a grant to implement a service project of the Scholar’s own design, and four summers of experiences that will develop leadership skills, social awareness and an international perspective. The total value of this four-year package is estimated at $105,000 for in-state students and $155,000 for out-of-state students.
The Scholars value the benefits of the rigorous academic programs at UNC Charlotte, the state’s only urban research university noted for its innovative interdisciplinary programs and opportunities for student research. To complement classroom learning, Levine Scholars participate in rich and varied opportunities in the vibrant commercial and cultural center of Charlotte, North Carolina, the state’s largest metropolitan region.
A passion to make a difference is a defining attribute of a Levine Scholar. All Scholars receive access to a service grant to implement a project of their own design in the community. The grant and the service project transform the lives of the Levine Scholars, the lives of the individuals and the families with whom they work, and the communities where Scholars extend their energy and creativity. Upon graduation, Levine Scholars move into their chosen careers fully prepared as talented scholars, gifted leaders and passionate humanitarians.
