Future Scholars

Are you ready for an immersive, engaged scholarship experience that strengthens the academic mission of the university, advances the public good, and addresses critical community needs? As a Charlotte Community Scholar, you will participate in a 9-week program structured around  community-based learning and professional development opportunities, while reflecting on the challenges and rewards of working for the public good. Scholars grow in their capacity as engaged scholars, skilled employees, and democratic citizens. Browse the links on the left to learn about becoming a Charlotte Community Scholar.

Students who participate in UR are more likely to be admitted to and successfully complete graduate programs.  Student community scholars have the option of working full-time (40 hours/week) or part-time (20 hours/week) throughout the 9-week summer program; full-time students receive a stipend of $4000 and part-time students receive a stipend of $2000.
