The Presidential Scholars serve a one year appointment and provide a wide range of professional functions for UNC General Administration. With access to high ranking university officials, scholars have the opportunity to explore and understand the inner workings of an institution that has transformed North Carolina’s economy and is critical to our state’s future. Largely self-directed, this position lends itself to December 2018 or May 2019 UNC system graduates who are motivated, intellectually curious, and not afraid to take risks. The position will have regular interaction with senior leadership and members of the Board of Governors and will work to research, write, and implement policy. While there are daily responsibilities, Presidential Scholars are frequently presented with unique opportunities and it is expected that they be willing to assume additional projects as they arise.
