Parent Opportunity Fund

A well-rounded college experience extends beyond the academic excellence offered within UNCW’s classrooms. The Parent Opportunity Fund provides students with opportunities to explore new ideas and interests, to develop leadership skills and to foster friendships in a safe and healthy activity environment. 

With tuition and fees only covering about 30 percent of a UNCW education, the Chancellor allocates gifts to the Parent Opportunity Fund to support initiatives like:

  • UNCWeekend programming that provides a variety of both on and off-campus activities for students
  • Annual Seahawk Student Leadership Conference, which provides students with the opportunity to attend keynote and educational sessions, while also connecting with faculty and other students
  • Diverse speakers series and cultural events, through Campus Life Programming, that expose students to new cultures and traditions, fostering a community of global citizens
  • Career service offerings, such as internship fairs and resume review workshops


Be a part of the Parent Participation Challenge!

If 300 parents of current Seahawks make a gift of any amount, to any area of UNCW, a $25 increase will be unlocked for all parent gifts made during the challenge.
