Leadership & Service

Royster Fellows have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills, pursue their personal interests, and provide service to others through Royster led initiatives.

Hear from the Fellows: Leadership & Service


The Royster Advanced Mentoring Program (RAMP) pairs Royster Fellows with Covenant Scholar undergraduate students who are considering graduate school. The Covenant Scholar program offers opportunities for eligible low-income students who have earned admission to UNC-Chapel Hill to graduate debt-free.

Stigma Free Carolina

Stigma Free Carolina is a UNC-Chapel Hill community campaign aimed at reducing stigma toward mental health concerns and treatment. The campaign leads outreach focused on accurately defining mental health, educating the community, and dispelling negative or false beliefs about mental health and its treatment.

Pub Talks

Once per semester, the Royster Pub Talk committee invites UNC-Chapel Hill faculty members to give a talk to the group in an informal setting. Previous topics have included mentoring, discourse in the university, and the concept of “borders” with an interdisciplinary approach.
