The Phillips Ambassadors Program is one of UNC Chapel Hill’s most generous and flexible scholarships for undergraduate study abroad in Asia. Founded in 2007 by Ambassador Earl N. “Phil” Phillips and his family, the program has supported more than 320 students studying abroad in Asia.

The scholarship combines a financial award, an academic course, and a charge to students to share their unique study abroad experience with young people in their hometowns and with the Carolina community. Eligible students from all academic majors may apply in two cycles per year.
