We provide a four-year, fully funded educational experience for students of the highest caliber at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The Morehead-Cain is so much more than tuition and room and board. It sets your potential free. It offers life-changing summer enrichment and Discovery Fund experiences. It provides immersion in a dynamic student body at a world-class university. And, it promises a lifetime connection to an unparalleled community of Morehead-Cains scattered across the planet.
You influence, energize, and inspire others to work together to make an impact. It’s more than titles held or roles played. For you, leadership is about courage and action.
Courage, humility, integrity, maturity, perseverance, self‑awareness, generosity, and empathy—these are the core values of the Morehead‑Cain community. You embrace the fact that you are growing and learning.
You thrive in an academically rigorous environment, yet are able to contribute to your community in other ways. You’re ready to take full advantage of UNC’s academic excellence.
You value what is gained—collaboration, sportsmanship, discipline, stamina, and persistence—by preparing for and engaging in competitions and performances.*
