All current business majors and minors are eligible to participate on a Kenan-Flagler Global Program. For students that are newly admitted to the business school, your eligibility to participate on a particular global program depends on the successful completion of your business school pre-requisite courses. The quickest way to determine what programs you are eligible for is to start an application. Your application is already formulated to populate with the program options that you are currently eligible for during the ongoing application cycle.

If you do not see the program listed that you are interested in, reach out to us via email or schedule an advising appointment so we can confirm your program options and explore choices.

Scholarship Application

The Undergraduate Business Program offers $1,000,000 in scholarships for students applying to UBP Global Programs. Awards vary by program type, but typically range from $1,000-$5,000. Apply for a scholarship at the same time you apply for your UBP global program (deadlines are the same for both). The scholarship application is accessed through the global program application.

Application Instructions

Kenan-Flagler Global programs applications and merit-based scholarship applications for global programs use the same application system as Undergraduate Business Admissions. Access the application through the Undergraduate Business Global Programs Application Portal.  Please login using your Kenan-Flagler credentials.

Each type of global program has a different set of required application materials that you will need to upload:

Campus Safety/Honor Code* X X X X

* Conditional or optional materials; see below for additional information.

Upload a document with answers to 7 different questions (11 questions if you are applying to participate in two programs in the summer) formatted in the following manner:

  • Each answer should have its own page
  • Paste the question in bold above your answer
  • Answers must follow the stated word limit
  • All pages should be single-spaced, using 1-inch margins and a 12-point font that is easy to read (like Arial, Calibri, or Times New Roman)

Upload a copy of your most recent resume. Ensure your resume includes past summer activities and any changes to your extracurricular engagement.

UNC Transcript
Note: Transcript orders take on average 1-3 business days to process. Follow these instructions to order a copy. If you experience issues accessing or saving your official .pdf transcript, please email the transcript services team.

Course Schedule
Upload a list of the courses you are taking at UNC this semester. You may either print off the schedule directly from ConnectCarolina, or create one in a table. Do not include any courses that you’ve dropped, and wait until you know the status of your enrollment in waitlisted courses before completing this requirement.

Scholarship Application (optional)*
To apply for a merit-based scholarship you will need to submit answers to a few additional questions and upload a personal statement detailing why you wish to be considered. The prompt for this personal statement is included in the application.

Honor Code and Campus Safety (documentation may be required)*
You are required to agree to uphold the Honor Code while on a Kenan-Flagler sponsored global program, and to answer a series of yes/no questions relating to our safety standards. If you answer “yes” to one or more of the seven safety standards questions, this will not necessarily preclude you from being accepted to study abroad, but you will need to provide additional information and upload additional documents as needed. The Undergraduate Business Program runs your PID through our UNC systems. If your application is flagged, but you have not answered “yes” and provided the necessary documentation, you are considered to have failed to provide complete, accurate, and truthful information. This evidence will be grounds to deny or withdraw your admission, or to dismiss you after enrollment. In particular, you are required to provide information regarding UNC housing violations (found responsible), and academic or behavioral conduct violations (found responsible). This can include, but is not limited to, academic cheating, conduct violations, alcohol policy infractions or housing violations of any type during your enrollment at UNC.

You may request a release of your Housing Conduct record to be sent to you electronically, for the purpose of uploading to your application.

If you are unsure if your application may be flagged in our PID check for other UNC-related infractions, please contact the following departments for additional information:

For Behavioral or Academic Violations (non-housing):
Office of Student Conduct

For Other Violations:
Dean of Students

Notification and Acceptance of Offer

Typically you will receive notification within two weeks of submitting your application. Once you receive an admission notice, you will have to confirm your participation on the program or withdraw your application to study abroad by the stated deadline in your admission notice.
