The Morehead-Cain Team: Get to know us!

Lindsay Oliver

Program Coordinator for Scholar Advising

After working with the Foundation’s development team on several fundraising projects, Lindsay joined the Foundation staff as the program coordinator for scholar advising in 2014. She quickly identified with the Program’s mission and purpose, discovering that the Program’s eclectic group of scholars and alumni always have a way of keeping things interesting.

Lindsay coordinates scholar events and programming, and also manages the Morehead-Cain Discovery Fund, which allows scholars to apply for grants to explore new ideas, develop practical skills, conduct research, and connect with Morehead-Cain alumni.

Originally from Shelby, NC, Lindsay has called Chapel Hill her home since 2006. She enjoys being outdoors, bookbinding, trying new restaurants, traveling, and getting to know a new place by visiting its best ice cream shops.
