Parents Council Grant Program

The Parents Council Grant Program awards yearly grants to UNC student organizations and university offices to support new and innovative programs/events that benefit undergraduate students. Parents Council families are asked to make a minimum annual gift of $1,250 to support the grant initiative. Since its inception in 1985, the Parents Council Grants Program has provided more than 1.75 million dollars in grant funding to enhance the quality of undergraduate student life and learning at Carolina.
