James M. Johnston Awards

Scholarship Description
The Johnston Awards are UNC-Chapel Hill's premier need-based scholarships. Every year approximately 70 entering freshmen are chosen to be Johnston Scholars, based on outstanding high school records and leadership potential. Entering freshmen who submit the FAFSA and the PROFILE Application by March 1 are considered for this renewable award. Current recipients must also file the FAFSA and the PROFILE each year by March 1 to determine the amount of their Johnston Award. Annual award amounts are adjusted to meet recipients' financial aid eligibility. Special programs accompany this prestigious scholarship in order to enrich the educational experiences of Johnston Scholars and to bring them together as a group of uniquely talented individuals. Faculty mentors, Johnston Honors Seminars, and special leadership activities are included as part of the Johnston Scholars Program. Johnston Scholarships are renewable, provided that recipients achieve a minimum grade point average of 2.75 their freshman year and 3.0 each year thereafter. The Johnston Scholarship also covers additional expenses associated with UNC-sponsored Study Abroad programs. If in a given year a Johnston Scholar evidences no financial need, he/she remains a Johnston Scholar and is guaranteed a minimum award of$1,000.
