THE ROBERTSON EXPERIENCE
The Robertson Scholars Leadership Program provides eight semesters of full tuition, room and board, and most mandatory fees for Scholars at Duke and UNC-Chapel Hill. Scholars also have access to generous funding for up to three summer experiences, funding for conferences throughout the academic year, and for two semesters of study abroad.
GIVE TO RSLP
Julian Robertson gave boldly and generously when he created the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program twenty-two years ago. He believed in the power of communities, and more importantly, he believed in the power of people to create a better world.
We are launching a Generosity Campaign in his honor and asking you to do as he did: to give boldly and generously as we establish the Julian H. Robertson, Jr., Alumni Fund.
