The Wood Family Scholars Program not only makes it possible for outstanding students to attend UNC-Chapel Hill. It also provides the resources — including guided self-exploration and a close-knit community of scholars — that help students grow as leaders who will create value and improve the lives of others. Thanks to the experiences provided by the program, as well as their own hard work, Wood Scholars leave Carolina prepared to make a difference, with a clearer understanding of their path and their purpose.

In an ever more complicated and difficult world, the need for great new leaders grows each year. The Wood Family Foundation Scholarship Program gives students the necessary tools to become leaders in their respective fields and meet the challenge.”
– Leonard W. Wood, class of ’72
