Each year, the Carolina Parents Council selects new and innovative programs/events for funding through the Parents Council Grant Fund.  These funds consist of monies raised from the Parents Council members of undergraduate students and emeritus members of the Council.  The Parents Council has granted substantial funding to several academic and student affairs departments for programs/events that contribute to the quality of undergraduate student life and learning at Carolina.  While grant awards from the Council can be given in varying amounts, there is no maximum amount for an award this year.
