Law school adds scholarship
By SARAH CAGLE
The School of Law has established
the Chancellors Scholars Program,
which will award full scholarships to
six outstanding law school students
beginning next fall.
The program is modeled after the
old Morehead Fellowship in Law
program, which was discontinued in
1984, said Judith Wegner, associate
dean of the law school.
The School of Law used to receive
three Morehead Fellowships each
year, said Ronald Link, acting dean
of the law school. But the Morehead

About 120 high school seniors will

The Morehead scholarship is
awarded to high school seniors based
on academic merit, said Charles
Bowman, asssociate director of the
Morehead Foundation. The scholar
ship pays for students' tuition, room
and board, and expenses.
The students will visit Chapel Hill
March 4-7. Each candidate will be
assigned two UNC Morehead scho
lars to serve as hosts. In addition to
interviews, the students will attend
informal receptions with Morehead
scholars, a breakfast with faculty and
trustees, an information session, and
a formal banquet.
The candidates will be interviewed
on Monday and Tuesday. The

"The Morehead Fellowships
enabled us to attract some of the very

Current Morehead scholars said
the weekend helped convince them to
attend UNC and gave them a good
impression of the University.
"I eained a sense of the atmosphere
here at Carolina," said Kenny Abner,
in Suite C of the Student Union.
The new vice president position
was created by a student referendum,
which passed with a vote of 3,656 to
920 in the Feb. 21 general election.
"The office of the vice president
was set up to be as non-political as
possible," Student Body President
elect Brien Lewis said Thursday. "I
think that that is shown in the way
that the selection process is set up."
A selection committee will vote on
the office of vice president, along with
those of treasurer and secretary. The
selection committee will consist of the

Court, who will chair the committee;

"There was no perceptible change
in the quality of our applicants after
the Morehead Fellowships were
discontinued, but it was more of an
impressionistic feeling that we might
have lost a few superstars that the
Morehead program would have
attracted," Link said.
The law school invited about 100
of its top applicants to apply for the
scholarships, Wegner said.
Of these, 20 applicants will be
interviewed at the law school April

faculty at the law school and observe

The selection committee will pick
three finalists, and the president-elect
will choose one of those, who must
be approved by Student Congress.
Student Congress Speaker Neil
Riemann said he felt the proposed
selection process for the vice president
would be effective because it attemp
ted to get the politics out of the
selection. "When it first came out (the
referendum), I had a lot of problems
with it," Riemann said. "Now that
Kevin has worked on it, I believe that
there is no way that the appointment
could be a political decision."
Lewis said he was glad the student
body passed the referendum because
he had seen a heed for a vice president
in the past.
"There is really a need for one,"
he said. "The vice president really has
two responsibilities. One is to con
centrate on all the appointments that
the SBP makes to the various boards
and chancellor committees, (and) the
other is to fill in for the president,
just in case. The SBP cant be in two
places at the same time."
The office will require a lot of
experience and time commitment,

"You have to be someone who can

Administrators are under a lot of
pressures; students are just a compo
nent of the pie. Understanding both
sides of an issue is key."
Along with the executive expe
rience involved with the position, the
vice president must be able to commit
to the time required. "It is a pretty
big time commitment. I spent two to
three hours a day doing the appoint

The target date for the selection of
