A Passion For Sports

The Carolina Blue Honors Fellowship allows students with a passion for the business of sports to create their own summer internship in a sports business or conduct faculty-mentored research on a sports-related topic in the international setting of their choice.

Designed for ambitious students who possess a strong work ethic and sense of adventure, the Carolina Blue Honors Fellowship provides up to $5,000 to support self-designed, international learning experiences, such as working for an Australian Baseball League franchise, leading a social media campaign for a professional cricket franchise in the India Premier League, researching the effectiveness of a new training regime on swimmers in Chile, or helping a soccer start-up get off the ground in Tanzania.

Three Carolina Blue Honors Fellowships are available each year.
