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
Giving back to the Robertson Program is not only about recognizing the unbelievable opportunities given to our Scholars and Alumni; it’s also about recognizing the important role of creating these opportunities for future scholars!
Funds will be used to enrich the definitive Robertson experiences —things like the first-year NOLS retreat, the Community Summer, Dinners for Eight with faculty and alumni, and the Senior Capstone. With your ongoing financial support and continued input, these experiences will continue to grow and push current and future Scholars to expand their horizons and meet their potential.
One time donations or monthly recurring gifts are possible through our online giving portal. There are many ways to give, including your time, talent, and treasure. Please take a look at our Giving page for more information on giving back to RSLP!
