Eve Carson Scholarship

The Eve Carson Junior Year Scholarship was established in 2008 following the former student body president’s death. The scholarship evolved from an idea in her platform to reward a rising junior with a scholarship to cover tuition, fees and a summer experience, similar to the program offered by the Morehead-Cain Foundation. She hoped the scholarship would recognize students who had blossomed at UNC.

Scholarship recipients must fulfill several qualifications: a minimum grade point average of 3.0, involvement in service work, and a minimum of 48 hours at the University. They must not already have a full-ride merit scholarship such as the Morehead-Cain or Robertson scholarships. The first scholar was Elinor Benami. The scholarship was originally awarded to two junior students each year, but it was awarded to three junior students in 2015.

The 2015 Eve Carson Scholars are Nancy Smith, Paige Nielsen and Michael Adams.
