To be considered for an adviser position, applicants must be a recent graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill, and must have completed all course work by the end of May 2018 (to begin work in June 2018). If you are interested in joining the Carolina Corps but are not an alum, please contact our staff.
In addition to being a recent graduate, an adviser must be genuinely committed to serving underrepresented students and be able to work well with diverse populations. The Carolina Corps seeks advisers who are friendly, approachable, self-motivated, creative, enthusiastic, and passionate about higher education.
Carolina Corps Advisers receive the following benefits:
- Living Allowance
- Health Insurance
- Education Award ($5,815 per year of service, credited towards loans from undergraduate education or held for future educational costs)
- Professional Development Opportunities
Following graduation, newly-selected advisers meet to begin an intensive five-week summer training at UNC-Chapel Hill. During training, advisers are provided with housing and parking in Chapel Hill. Professionals engage advisers around topics such as the college application process, serving target students, financial aid and SAT/ACT preparation. Advisers also participate in the annual National College Advising Corps Summit, as well as a mid-year training hosted on the campus of UNC-Chapel Hill.
