Morehead-Cain Scholars Program
Congratulations to Chloe Pearson, Class of 2022! Chloe has been named a Morehead-Cain Scholar of the University of NC at Chapel Hill. The Morehead-Cain Foundation is home to the first merit scholarship established in the United States, founded at the first public university in the United States—the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The Morehead-Cain is a four-year, fully funded educational experience for students of the highest caliber. It also features a distinctive program of summer enrichment experiences designed to stretch students beyond their comfort zones. Selection criteria for the Morehead-Cain are leadership, moral force of character, academic achievement, and physical vigor. Only a handful of Morehead-Cain recipients are selected, solely on the basis of merit and accomplishment, from among the thousands of students who apply.
