Admissions Referral

The Duke and UNC-Chapel Hill undergraduate admissions offices refers strong candidates to the Robertson Program. All students who apply for admission to Duke and/or UNC will automatically be considered for merit scholarships. If you are referred to the Robertson Program through this process, we will contact you in February.

Please note that applying directly through the Robertson Scholars application is the only way to ensure that the student’s materials will be reviewed by our selection committee.
