Student Spotlight

“Guarantee” means a great deal to senior biology major Dominick DeFelice. It’s the name of the scholarship – the UNCG Guarantee – that made it possible for him to go to college. But it also signifies the pledge he’s made.

“I want to be the best doctor I can be and then do everything I can to give back to my parents. I’ve never lost sight of that.”

He’s making good on his word. Dominick is a Lloyd International Honors College scholar with a 4.0 GPA. He was named a Barry M. Goldwater Scholar honorable mention – two years in a row. He’s also held an undergraduate research assistantship for four straight years. His success is motivated by two main goals: to make important contributions to the field of medicine and to help turn around his family’s financial circumstances.

About the UNCG Guarantee

As a result of a $6 million gift received from an anonymous donor in February 2009, we began the initial phase of the UNCG Guarantee Program in fall 2010. The university makes every attempt to meet the rest of the recipients' financial need through a combination of federal, state, university, and private grants and scholarships. UNCG Guarantee helps in-state students graduate from UNCG in four years with little or no debt as well as provides a support program to encourage academic and personal success.
