The Robertson is among the most highly sought-after merit scholarships in the country. We are the only program that completely combines the extraordinary resources of two world class universities, Duke University and UNC-Chapel Hill. Our comprehensive program provides 4-years of tuition, room and board and mandatory fees, 3 fully-funded summer experiences, funding for conferences and seminars and unique access to the academic and extracurricular offerings on both campuses as well as four years of dedicated leadership development programming.
Our application deadline is November 15, 2019 for all materials and is independent of the admissions deadlines for UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke University. Students may apply for the Robertson regardless of whether they apply Early Action or Regular Decision at UNC-Chapel Hill and Early Decision or Regular Decision at Duke University.
It is worth noting that ideal Robertson candidates are students who appear destined to become leaders, not simply students with the best GPA or highest test scores. Traditionally the students who succeed in our selection process and in our program hold a passionate interest in something and show strong evidence of that passion in the activities they pursue.
