Inspire. Believe. Achieve.

24-Hour Challenge

For 24 hours, priceless gems from across the globe will come together (virtually) to support some of Carolina’s most academically gifted and multitalented African American students. Your gift will provide renewable scholarships for new and returning Light on the Hill Society scholars.

Because of the overwhelming support from Carolina alumni and friends, all scholarships are now renewable for up to three years, and the amounts have significantly increased:

  • Peppers Scholarship increased from $2,000 to $4,000 annually.
  • Light on the Hill Society Scholarship transitioned from a one-time $2,500 award to a renewable award of $2,000 annually.

As excited as we are about these wonderful changes, we want (and need) to do more. For that, we need your support.  Mark your calendar, and get ready to accept the challenge to inspire, believe and achieve.

This scholarship is administered by the Light on the Hill Society Scholarship Advisory Board and the UNC General Alumni Association.
