Make a Difference 

Alumni Association Scholarship for Social Justice

The Alumni Association Scholarship for Social Justice provides annual support to returning undergraduate students with demonstrated financial need, potential for academic success in their chosen program of study and a record of service or social action either at UNC Charlotte, in the greater Charlotte community or in their hometown. Our UNC Charlotte Alumni Board of Directors will be supporting this scholarship during #NinerNationGives.

Harper-Thomas Legacy Endowment for Study Abroad

This award, named in honor of Dr. Mary Harper and Dr. Herman Thomas, supports students’ international educational experiences with preference given to first-generation college students from underrepresented populations. Our UNC Charlotte Black Alumni Chapter will be supporting this endowment during #NinerNationGives.

Bank of America Alumni Network Scholarship 

The Bank of America UNC Charlotte Alumni Network was formed to connect 1,000+ University alumni at Bank of America together under one group. The goals of this affinity group are to encourage connectedness among teammates located within close proximity to one another, build out a broadly reaching professional network across the enterprise, and find opportunities to give back to the University together. 

Student Emergency Fund

The Student Emergency Fund assists UNC Charlotte students by providing financial support when they need assistance with unexpected and unavoidable life emergencies that cause unforeseen expenses, including pandemics. Our UNC Charlotte Young Alumni Chapter will be supporting this fund during #NinerNationGives.

49er Legacy Family Scholarship Fund

The Legacy Alumni Network recognizes families for making a 49er education part of their family tradition. The program is offered to encourage the 49er spirit in students who are children and/or grandchildren of UNC Charlotte graduates.  Families have passed on the 49er tradition to their children and we want to help celebrate this special relationship. The 49er Legacy Family Scholarship fund was created to honor that legacy and provide assistance to those carrying on the 49er family tradition.
