June C. Allcott Fellowship Recipients

This fellowship is named for June C. Allcott, a former guidance counselor at UNC. In her life, June C. Allcott was a gardener of friendships. She explored the world as a traveler, weaver of baskets, culinary adventurer, designer of jewelry and clothes, computer explorer, music and art lover, and friend. She had a particular place in her heart for those interested in the health fields. June developed a keen sense of the characteristics and values that naturally imbue people who make a difference in the helping professions. The June C. Allcott Fellowship identifies students who exemplify the ability to make helping connections with people.

The June C. Allcott Fellowship is awarded to student(s) who apply and demonstrate exemplary, ongoing, or new community service. The number of Allcott Fellowships awarded each year is determined by the amount of funds generated by the Allcott Scholarship Endowment.  The proceeds of the award may be used by the student to assist with his or her tuition and community service work as they see fit.

Two June C. Allcott Fellowships in Medicine are awarded to those students who apply and demonstrate exemplary, ongoing, or new community service. Allcott Fellowship recipients are expected to represent UNC School of Medicine on Community Service Day, Friday, February 20th, by presenting a poster on their contribution to community service.
