The Robertson Scholars Leadership Program seeks to assist students who have demonstrated passion and potential to become great leaders in college and beyond.

The Program was established by Julian and Josie Robertson of New York in 2000, and provides opportunities for students to study at Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the USA and to enjoy the benefits of both institutions. During the second semester of their second year, Robertson Scholars enrolled at Duke will be able to live and learn at UNC-Chapel Hill, and UNC-Chapel Hill Robertson Scholars to live and learn at Duke.

Up to two places are offered to talented Australian undergraduate students each year.

The Robertson Scholars Program is not just a scholarship; nor is it just a leadership development program. The Robertson Scholars Program is a comprehensive, long term investment in our Scholars’ futures.

The Robertson Scholars Program aims to foster collaboration between Duke and UNC-Chapel Hill. In addition, it aims to provide an opportunity for students with proven academic ability to benefit from what the two universities have to offer.

Robertson Scholars are expected to participate in the Robertson Scholarships academic enhancement activities, including regular school year and summer programs.

Value and Tenure
The Program valued at over $66,000 per annum provides full tuition, room and board. Robertson Scholars at UNC will receive an additional living stipend (to cover travel, books, etc). In addition, support is provided for three summers of service, research and travel.

This award is for a four year undergraduate program, provided the Scholar maintains good academic performance and conducts himself/herself in accordance with the expectations of the Program at either Duke and UNC-Chapel Hill.

The Scholarship is available for students of most courses of study including pre-medicine and pre-law. Study in medicine and law past undergraduate level is excluded.

The Scholarship may be held concurrently with any other bursary or scholarship, provided that the rules of the other award allow this.

The Scholarship must be taken up in the year in which it is awarded.
