Only about 60% of the cost of a UNCW education is covered by tuition, fees and state funding. UNCW donors help close the gap and provide the resources and learning opportunities that students need to succeed.

Thanks, PHIL, for providing funding for:

  • Classroom Technologies
  • Professional Conferences
  • Business Week
  • Scholarships
  • Expert Speakers
  • Internships
  • Student Research
  • Study Abroad
  • Student Life Programs
