New Hanover County High Schools Announce
Morehead-Cain and Park Scholarship Nominees

The scholarship committees from the district’s high schools have made their recommendations for this year’s seniors to represent New Hanover County Schools in the very competitive process of becoming Morehead-Cain or Park Scholarship recipients.

The Morehead-Cain Scholarship Program is one of the most prestigious university scholarship programs and includes four years paid tuition at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a laptop computer, and a four-year summer enrichment program. Morehead-Cain recipients are chosen by merit and accomplishments based on the following criteria: leadership, academic achievement, moral force of character and physical vigor.

The Park Scholarship program provides an outstanding educational opportunity for exceptionally talented and well-prepared young men and women to develop leadership skills and commitment to public service. The four-year scholarship to North Carolina State University covers tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, travel and personal expenses, as well as a computer stipend, opportunities for study abroad, grants for research and artistic projects, and yearly enrichment activities. The Park Scholarship is a merit based award, and selection is based on four criteria: scholarship, leadership, service and character.

Morehead-Cain and Park Scholarship winners will be announced in March 2014.
