Nominating Schools

Nominating schools are high schools outside of North Carolina that are each eligible to nominate a candidate for the Morehead-Cain Scholarship. Out-of-state and international students cannot apply directly for a Morehead-Cain Scholarship; they must be nominated by their high schools.

View a searchable list of nominating schools by location.

In North Carolina, Canada, and Great Britain, all high schools can nominate students and all high school seniors are also allowed to apply directly if they feel they are eligible.

Interested in becoming a nominating school?  We will accept applications for new nominating schools for the  2017–2018 academic year in the spring of 2017. Please visit this page at that time to complete the online interest form. Feel free to contact Mariah Keller with any questions.
