Wherever their research takes them

The Off-Campus Dissertation Fellowship enables Carolina graduate students to conduct research across the globe: in the field, in libraries or archives far from the Chapel Hill campus. As a result, they can conduct research of the highest quality that makes significant contributions to new knowledge within their disciplines and around the world.

Learning from each other

“I’ve always been interested in reaching across disciplinary boundaries,” says new Royster Distinguished Professor Marsha Collins. She shares her enthusiasm for the interdisciplinary Royster Society, as well as her belief in the uplifting power of education.

Mentoring matters

Theda Perdue, the Atlanta Distinguished Professor Emerita of Southern Culture, and Malinda Maynor Lowery, Associate Professor of History and Director of the Southern Oral History Program, talk about the importance of mentoring across a lifetime.

Presenting a dissertation in just three minutes

Doctoral student Nick Wagner won UNC-Chapel Hill’s first-ever Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition. He talks about how he benefited from thinking of his dissertation that way– and why he thinks other graduate students would benefit, too.

Mentoring from the start

This year, 43 Royster Fellows, members of The Graduate School’s select fellowship program, have been paired with 62 Carolina Covenant Scholars, undergraduates from low-income backgrounds who have been admitted to Carolina and have the opportunity to graduate debt-free.
