The Gerald Unks Undergraduate Travel Fellowship

The Gerald Unks Undergraduate Travel Fellowship

The Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs is pleased to administer “The Gerald Unks Undergraduate Travel Fellowship.” The awards are made to deserving Carolina students with applicable travel plans. The travel fellowship fund is made possible by the very gracious contributions of Dr. Gerald Unks who has established a permanent University trust fund for this purpose.

The fellowship was established upon the realization of the need for understanding and communication between people of various nationalities and cultures as methods of preserving world peace, the hope of increasing international awareness among citizens of the United States of America, and the inestimable value and reward of foreign travel for undergraduate students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Each award is up to $2,500 and eight recipients will be selected.

The awards are to be made every spring semester to deserving Carolina students with applicable travel plans.
