Robertson Scholars, it has been a while since we've used our Summer resource pages in the way they were designed. We have a LOT of rebuilding to do!
We will use this page for overall announcements. We have a special page for Community Summer, one for Exploration and Launch Summer, and one for Procedures. This last page will include information about summer insurance, registering international trips, etc.
- Exploration Summer 2021 Final Essay is due 9/24/2021
- Launch Summer final essay 2021 and deliverables are due 10/15/2021 NOW EXTENDED TO 10/22/2021
The Exploration and Launch page has new information for Summer 2022.
Thank you for your patience as we rebuild!
Everything below this line will be updated for 2021-22.
Announcements and Administration
- We have arranged emergency medical insurance to complement your own coverage while doing Robertson activities. Take this with you, or take a photo of this, if you need to call. Here's the policy for domestic travel.
- All Scholars receiving some funding for Summer 2021 should complete this form and return to Vicki. Here's a sample in case you have questions.
- UNC Scholars who want to receive funding to go out of state must fill out a petition. (Check the section for Undergraduate students under Students and Student Groups.) Vicki drafted these instructions. You will now need to submit proof of vaccination with your petition.
