Future Business Leaders Committed to Changing the World for the Better
Each year, the Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise distinguishes a small group of incoming undergraduate and MBA students as Kenan Scholars. Students are selected for their superior scholarship and genuine interest in putting the private sector to work for the public good. Scholars supplement classroom learning with internships, field trips, research experiences, networking and mentoring. They engage with prominent leaders in business, academia, policy and government to gain real-world experiences that advance their problem-solving and leadership abilities. The Kenan Scholars Program enhances the Carolina experience and prepares students to succeed in a diverse world and interconnected global economy.
The program maintains two tracks: Kenan Scholars and MBA Kenan Scholars.
