The Light on the Hill Society Scholarship effort began during the 2005 UNC Black Alumni Reunion. Organizers challenges alumni to initially contribute $1,952 each - representing the 1952 class year of Harvey Beech, Carolina's first African-American graduate - to become founding members of the scholarship fund.
For more than 13 years, Carolina alumni and friends have annually made tax-deductible gifts to the fund, ranging from a few dollars to several thousand, the largest being a $350,000 gift from NFL star Julius Peppers '02.
The Light on the Hill Society Scholarship will award ten (10) scholarships to African-American students who will enroll at UNC Chapel Hill for fall 2019.
By providing scholarships to first-year African-American students, this award serves as a tribute to African-American alumni of the 1950s and 1960s who were instrumental in the desegregation of UNC Chapel Hill.
A selection committee will evaluate applicants based on the following:
