The Robertson Scholars Leadership Program proudly welcomes four exceptional first-year students at UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke University into the Robertson Scholars Class of 2019. The students were chosen from a pool of about 200 candidates from both universities based on their demonstrated academic potential, character, and leadership during their first two semesters on campus.
Launched in 2009, the First-Year Selection Program invites current Duke and UNC first-year students each fall to apply to become Robertson Scholars. Scholars join the Program immediately upon their selection and receive full Program benefits in subsequent years.
