Due to the inclement weather, UNC’s Office for Diversity and Inclusion has extended the nominations and applications deadlines for our signature summer programs:
Project Uplift enables high-achieving rising high school seniors to experience college life on the Carolina campus over two days in May or June.
Uplift PLUS is a rigorous five-week program for high-achieving, in-state, Project Uplift participants. Students participate in a three-credit English course, engage in research, and much more while staying on campus. Students may express interest in Uplift PLUS by writing a supplemental essay within their Project Uplift application. There is no separate application.
The North Carolina Renaissance (NCR) program invites rising high school juniors from rural North Carolina communities for an educational four-day enrichment program in July.
Nomination cards and application forms are available at the links below:
Counselors may nominate up to 15 students for Project Uplift and NCR. However, applicants do not need a counselor nomination to apply. Applications for Project Uplift and NCR must be submitted online by 11:59 p.m., January 22, 2018. Applicants will be notified of our decision via email by early March 2018
