We know that Carolina students can and will have an immeasurable impact on the world. We take to heart that Morehead should be involved in preparing them accordingly. We employ Carolina students on campus in numbers second only to the University Library system. Among their responsibilities, they work with our after-school kids, present shows in the GlaxoSmithKline Fulldome Theater, perform demonstrations on the science stage and function behind the scenes, taking on administrative duties that make Morehead tick. In the process, they gain real-world learning opportunities, and we grow a loyal cadre of Morehead alumni. Our students are a major reason why Morehead holds such a special place on the UNC campus. Your support for them will ensure we continue to do so.

Carolina CovenantThe Carolina Covenant is UNC-Chapel Hill’s groundbreaking program for talented low-income students. Launched in 2004, the Covenant offers a debt-free path to graduation through a combination of grants, scholarships and a work-study job. Covenant Scholars also have access to mentoring, academic and personal support services. The program has dramatically improved on-time graduation among the University’s lowest-income students, transforming individual lives and building a stronger Carolina.

The night sky has much to teach us beyond astronomy; it can lend perspective on how early humans grappled with a universe beyond their comprehension – but not necessarily their imaginations.
