UNC Charlotte has named 15 finalists for undergraduate scholarships funded by the Leon Levine Foundation.

The Levine Scholars will enter the university in the fall semester.

Ten of the high school seniors are from North Carolina. The value of each scholarship is about $90,000 for in-state students and $140,000 for nonresidents. The funds cover tuition and fees, room and board, books and a laptop.

More than 1,000 student from 25 states were evaluated to find the finalists.

“The response from top students from around the country was more than we could have envisioned,” says Chancellor Philip Dubois. “Their credentials are at the very highest echelon, which made the selection process very difficult because of the quality of the individuals and the group as a whole.”
