Supporting Studies Abroad

Fourteen Carolina undergraduates were selected as Phillips Ambassadors for summer, fall and academic year 2021 study abroad programs in Asia. Undergraduate scholarship recipients will study in Hong Kong, Singapore and South Korea.

The Phillips Ambassadors Program is a program of UNC’s Carolina Asia Center, in association with the Study Abroad Office in the College of Arts & Sciences. Phillips Ambassadors are selected twice a year and receive $6,000 each.

The program is made possible through a gift from Carolina alumnus Earl N. “Phil” Phillips Jr., an entrepreneur and former U.S. ambassador, and his family.

“Our goal with this gift has been to encourage more students to spend their study abroad experiences focused on Asia — an increasingly vital region of the future,” said Phillips.

Starting in 2007, the program has supported more than 350 Carolina undergraduates in their studies abroad in Asia.
