Another UNC MOREHEAD-CAIN SCHOLARSHIP Awarded To A Cape Fear Academy Senior

Victor Agbafe has been named a Morehead-Cain Scholar at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.  Fewer than 4% of the more than 30,000 applicants are selected annually for this honor.  

Victor is one of three Cape Fear Academy students to receive a Morehead-Cain Scholarship in the last five years.  Nominees are chosen on the basis of character, academics, love for learning, physically active lifestyle, and leadership qualities. 

The Morehead-Cain, the first merit scholarship program established in the United States, was founded at the UNC which is the first public university in the United States.  Winners of the program receive a four-year undergraduate scholarship to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, personal access to the world’s best professors, and an opportunity to take on leadership roles in a wide variety of academic, social, and service organizations.  As one of only 70 recipients worldwide to receive this prestigious honor, he will receive full tuition and fees, along with other opportunities, including studying abroad.
