The Robertson Scholars Leadership Program is a merited scholarship at Duke University and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill in the United States that aids in teenage leaders who desire to make transformational contributions to society.
The Program, established by Julian and the late Josie Robertson in 2000, offers a chance for chosen undergraduate students to take benefit of the resources of two very highly considered universities.
Although Robertson candidates enroll in only one of the two institutions, they have entry to the classes and resources of both universities and live on the sister campus during the second term of their second year. Julian Robertson benevolently grants a scholarship to at least one exceptional New Zealand undergraduate student each year.
