A new group of high school seniors have been accepted to UNC Charlotte's Levine Scholars Program.
Twenty recipients will get of the full-ride scholarship, and the group includes 12 students from North Carolina, the university announced Monday.
The Levine Scholars Program, created by Sandra and Leon Levine in 2009, provides a full four-year scholarship and summer leadership experiences for about 20 high school graduates each year. The value is estimated at $105,000 for North Carolina residents and $155,000 for out-of-state students.
More than 3,300 students were nominated for the program, according to a release.
