About the Walter White Buckley Jr. Public Service Scholars Program

Launched in 2003 as a program of the Carolina Center for Public Service, the Buckley Public Service Scholars program (BPSS) provides a framework for undergraduate students who want to strengthen and maintain their commitment to serving communities throughout North Carolina, the nation and the world. BPSS encourages students to learn about and practice public service and engagement beyond the scope of traditional volunteerism, including organizational service, policy and advocacy work, fundraising and philanthropy. The program is open to all full-time undergraduate students with at least four semesters remaining at Carolina. To learn more about the program goals, benefits and requirements, visit the BPSS website.
