In 2000 alumnus Julian Robertson and his wife, Josephine, gave $24 million to establish an unusual scholarship program that would enable students to enroll jointly at UNC—Chapel Hill and Duke. The Robertson Scholars take classes and participate in extracurricular activities at both schools. One of the most visible elements of the program is the Robertson Express Bus, which runs regularly between the two campuses.
