    The Morehead-Cain Scholarship--awarded to about 70 incoming freshmen each year--covers all expenses for four years at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

    Among the 70 Morehead-Cain Scholars for the Class of 2024, 37 are from North Carolina, and 33 are from outside of North Carolina including 3 from Canada.

    Selection is based on:

    Leadership
    Moral Force of Character
    Academic Achievement
    Physical Vigor

    Morehead-Cain Scholar applicants / candidates must be nominated by their high school / prep school. Very easy to arrange if one's high school has not done so in the past.

    Does the M-C Foundation send a blanket email to all prospective UNC applicants in late July?

    @Publisher Do you mean it is easy to arrange for your school to become a nominating school? It looks like from the Morehead site it would be too late for a new school to nominate someone that is in the 2021 graduating class.

    My understanding is that a high school representative just needs to contact the Morehead-Cain scholarship committee to be added to the list of eligible nominating schools.

    @alimom123 if you mean will the kids receive M-C "junk" emails, yes. D20 received several; don't read anything into it.
