Each gift makes a difference
In his Welcome remarks for the 2018-19 academic year, Chancellor Franklin D. Gilliam, Jr. observed that UNC Greensboro faces a critical moment in its history. At its own inflection point – a turning point after which we can expect a dramatic change – our University is on the verge of becoming a national model for how a university can blend opportunity, excellence and impact to advance student success and transform communities. Yet it is only through effort, through everyone pulling together in the same direction, that UNC Greensboro’s remarkable, everyday impact will spread.
The ongoing generosity of alumni, corporations, foundations and friends creates motivation for excellence and momentum for change on campus and in our community. Nowhere is that generosity more richly deserved than in support of student veterans. Since 1946, when our University welcomed its first cohort of student veterans in the wake of World War II, UNCG Greensboro has prided itself on supporting those brave women and men who protect and defend our country. With 7 percent of our student population classified as military veterans or veteran dependents, programs and scholarships that help veterans navigate the transition from military to civilian life are essential. Many of these programs are established and supported by those with military affiliation, whose intimate knowledge of the sacrifices of service allows them to create resources that specifically address veterans’ needs. Veterans enrich our University with their unique perspective and commitment, finding a home on campus as they assist their fellow sisters- and brothers-in-arms to succeed.

Why They Give
The Kaitlin E. Morelli Endowed Scholarship in Nursing, established by Kaitlin’s parents and brother, supports the aspirations of future nurses.
“We hope this scholarship will help other students realize their dream … We believe Kaitlin’s spirit will live on every time a nursing school graduate goes out into the world and shares their gifts and the skills they acquired in the nursing program.”
