    UNC Need-based financial aid

    UNC’s need-based scholarships are generous, especially considering all their other financial aid offerings. The college is need-blind, meeting demonstrated need for all admitted students. One of the best programs that UNC offers is the Carolina Covenant, which provides debt-free funding for students who come from families making less than 200% of the federal poverty level. Note that UNC requires both the FAFSA and CSS Profile to qualify for financial aid.

    UNC Merit Scholarships

    The most prestigious of UNC Chapel Hill scholarships is the Morehead-Cain Scholarship which is a four year fully funded program within the University. The Morehead-Cain Scholarship aims to support the top academic students and leaders in the world. This scholarship, along with the Robertson Scholarship, requires a separate application. Additionally, UNC offers a variety of other merit scholarships that only require the UNC admissions application.
