Six high school seniors from the Charlotte region will join 46 others from around the world to study at UNC-Chapel Hill over the next four years on the prestigious Morehead-Cain scholarship.

The Morehead-Cain, founded in 1945, is among the nation’s most competitive merit scholarship programs, paying all expenses for four years of undergraduate study at Chapel Hill. Scholars also receive a laptop, and are provided four summer enrichment opportunities.

The value: $90,000 for in-state students; $170,000 for out-of-staters.

Thirty-four of the 52 scholars are from North Carolina. Six are international students: three from Great Britain, three from Canada.
