UNC's Morehead-Cain Scholarship

The Morehead-Cain Scholarship at UNC provides the following...

  • Full tuition & fees
  • Room & board
  • Textbooks
  • A laptop computer
  • Funds to educational discovery activities
  • Four summer enrichment programs on Outdoor Leadership, Public Service, Inquiry & Exploration, and Private Enterprise
The application process is highly competitive and students must demonstrate accomplishment in four key areas...

Leadership-Leaders demonstrate courage, action, and initiative. Our scholars act, impact, influence, and inspire.

Moral Force of Character-Integrity, empathy, bravery, humility, maturity, and generosity

Scholarship-We seek candidates for whom learning is an appetite rather than a means to an end-those who will take full advantage of UNC's academic excellence.

Physical Vigor-Candidates must demonstrate a sustained commitment to an active lifestyle and a dedication to fitness and physical activity. 

If this describes you and you wish to be considered, you must submit a description of how you exemplify each of these four criteria. One paragraph per criteria will be sufficient. A faculty committee will review your submission and your transcript and then select two nominees to continue in the application process. 

Paragraphs should be submitted to Jill O'Kane by September 14th.
