The Morehead-Cain Foundation has announced the latest recipients of its long-running annual scholarship program, which provides graduating seniors a full scholarship to attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The oldest merit scholarship program in the country covers all expenses for four years of undergraduate study at UNC and provides a variety of summer enrichment programs, including an outdoor leadership course, public service activities in the United States or abroad, research opportunities at sites across the globe, and business internships. Chosen solely on the basis of merit and accomplishment, the Morehead-Cain Class of 2016 includes twenty-two scholars from North Carolina, sixteen from fourteen other U.S. states, one student from Morocco, two from Turkey, three from the United Kingdom, and three from Canada.
Currently, more than two hundred and twenty-two Morehead-Cain scholars are attending UNC. Since the first cohort of scholars graduated in 1957, twenty-two of the program's recipients have won Fulbright Fellowships, while in the past ten years twelve scholars have won Rhodes Scholarships to Oxford University.
