Richard T. Greener Scholarship

Since 1983, the Black Alumni Council has actively worked to attract bright students to the university by providing scholarships to graduating high school seniors who have excelled academically. Richard Theodore Greener, the man for whom the scholarship is named, became the first African-American to graduate from Harvard University in 1870 and was the first African-American faculty member at Carolina in 1873.

We invite you to support our scholarship project. Consider both your time on campus, as well as the incredible impact we as alumni are having on today’s students, our region and our nation. This scholarship, funded for students, by alumni and friends, will serve for decades to come as a shining example of the momentum of our Black Alumni Council. If you would like to make a donation securely online, we have a page set up for you to do so conveniently.
