Welcome to the website of the Crown Scholars Program at UNC Charlotte. Our program is relatively new, still coming into its own identity as a merit scholars program within the Honors College. What we do know about ourselves is that our core values are scholarship, intellectual and cultural breadth, curiosity about research, authentic community engagement, and a commitment to reflection and growth. Crown Scholars faculty, staff, students, and community partners mutually invest in each other, the program, the Honors College, the University, and the major metropolitan center that is Charlotte, North Carolina. We are proud to be at the urban research university of the UNC system, UNC Charlotte, and that is reflected in everything we do.
The 2015-2016 academic year has been an exciting time, as our first year as an official program. Please explore this website to learn more about the program we are building, the application process, the wonderful donors who make the scholarships possible, and our staff and current scholars. As we build, we plan to add alumni features, and more information about current scholars’ activities. Enjoy!
