Make a Pledge


Morehead-Cain is home to the first merit scholarship program founded in the United States. And for more than seventy years, we have aspired to provide an undergraduate experience without equal.

Simply put, our mission is to sustain and enhance the excellence of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. We invest in young leaders, creators, and thinkers determined to make a profound impact on the world, and we give them the support and encouragement they need to set free their potential.

We now have an opportunity to make Morehead-Cain better.

Your support will grow the number of bright, curious, and adventurous scholars we can invite to Carolina. It will create transformative new experiences. It will expand the impact our scholars and alumni have on their communities—on campus and across the globe.

We can honor the legacies of John Motley Morehead III and Gordon Cain by establishing our own. By finding inspiration in their commitment to do more for others than for themselves. By fulfilling the promise to create something extraordinary.

So let’s do this.
