Make A Gift

Why We Give

Scholars make up less than 2 percent of the undergraduate student body, but their impact goes well beyond their numbers. The impact of alumni on scholars’ success is immeasurable.

Generous support of the Program covers all costs for approximately 75 scholars a year.

Alumni support of the Program is enough to cover the cost of the Summer Enrichment Program.

Giving to the Program provides close to 20 percent of the Foundation’s annual budget.

“Chapel Hill captured me. And then there’s Morehead-Cain. The Foundation was always open, and the staff made sure I was doing well. For me, the encouragement was huge. It’s why I wholeheartedly support the Program today.”
Elizabeth Hughes ’14
“From the opportunity to teach in South Africa, to travel through Europe conducting research, and—most importantly—the amazing people I've met, I couldn't be more grateful to be a part of this community.”
Frank Craighill ’61
“Being what was called a Morehead Scholar, and now of course a Morehead-Cain Scholar, had a major impact on my life. . . how could we not give back to a program that’s given so much to each of us?”
“Give yourself room to grow.”
