Race to the Finish

Taking matters into their own hands, UNC Charlotte students, faculty and staff are helping fund some incredibly impactful projects. On March 15, University teams launched multiple crowdfunding initiatives to support three scholarships, a Habitat for Humanity build in El Salvador, a Costa Rica Study Abroad program, a mediation tournament and an astrobotics competition. 

The catch? They only had 30 days to raise their funds - and we're now in the final hours. Some projects have reached their goal, but several are still a few feet from the finish line. Check out all the projects below and support a student project that speaks to you.
