Burch Fellows design their own unique educational experiences and travel the globe to pursue their passions.
Designed for students who possess extraordinary ability, promise, and imagination, the Burch Fellows Program provides up to $6,000 to support self-designed, off-campus learning experiences like these: Working with NASA astrobiologists to answer questions about the possibility of life on other planets. Jamming with jazz musicians in Cuba. Traveling to the Philippines to study how bamboo can mitigate the effects of climate change.
The Burch Fellows Program was established with a gift from Carolina alumnus Lucius E. Burch III.
