The Chemistry Community College Transfer Scholarship

Recipients of the competitive scholarship will receive up to $10,000 per year toward a chemistry degree at UNC. The scholarships are renewable for up to three years. The scholarship will cover tuition, and education-related expenses, thereby eliminating the need to work off-campus.

  • More direct student support from services like Financial Aid and
    Career Services.
  • In-depth degree and career advising from chemistry faculty.
  • Monthly seminars to connect scholars to on-campus student support
    services and chemistry opportunities outside of UNC.
  • Funds to support research experiences and research-related travel.
  • Opportunities to build a career network.
  • Research with faculty.
