Caldwell Fellows

"You just don't know how magnificent you might be. Think big! Think big about your possibilities in this world."
— John T. Caldwell

NC State Chancellor 1959-1975

Named for John T. Caldwell, NC State’s chancellor from 1959 to 1975, the Caldwell Fellows Program builds on his legacy of leadership, service and scholarship. Students who share a passion to learn, grow and serve others can apply to become a Caldwell Fellow during their first year at the university.

Supported by alumni and friends, the program is dedicated to developing students as individuals and as servant-leaders — now and throughout their lives.

Below, you can learn more about the ongoing impact of the Caldwell Fellows as the program marks its first 50 years.
