The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is offering special funding for students adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Carolina Together Roadmap continues to be the primary communication portal from campus and we anticipate it will be updated regularly with information to support UNC’s community. Additionally, the COVID-19 Student Care Hub in Keep Learning UNC has Academic, Financial, Health and Wellness, and Career resources available in one place. COVID-19 financial assistance supports are also available through the Office of Scholarships and Student Aid.

View UNC-Chapel Hill and additional community opportunities below. We will continue to update opportunities as we learn of them. If you have questions or needs that fall outside of the funding options below, please contact the UNC School of Education’s Office of Student Affairs by calling (919) 966-1346 or email
