The Robert E. Bryan Public Service Award honors the memory and accomplishments of alumnus Robert E. Bryan (’26) of Newton Grove, NC, who worked his way through Carolina to become a successful businessman, entrepreneur and public servant. The Bryan Award recognizes individuals (students, faculty or staff) who, as representatives of UNC-Chapel Hill, have demonstrated outstanding engagement and service to the state of North Carolina by:

  1. Working in partnership with community members,
  2. Inspiring and involving others, and/or helping others to serve,
  3. Responding to a practical problem, issue or concern of the state, and
  4. Working to assure that the impact of their efforts in the community is lasting.


This award is for a particular effort or one-time event (rather than an overall record of service) carried out through the individual’s role(s) in the University rather than as a private citizen. Students, faculty and staff are eligible. Up to three awards are given annually. Each winner receives a framed certificate and a monetary award.
