The scholarships are open to all JUNIORS at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Any junior may apply without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, or handicap, whose public and private community activities demonstrate a commitment to improving the quality of life of our community and campus. The awards are given annually to students who, as judged by the MLK, Jr. Scholarship Committee, best exemplify Dr. King’s commitment to our society. Nominees are judged on the basis of the activities and contributions that demonstrate their commitment to civil/human rights and their desire to improve the quality of life of all members of University community. Nominees are also judged on the ability to achieve and excel academically. One first place winner will receive a $1,500 scholarship and two runner-up candidates will receive $1,000 scholarships.
