Top Scholars Announced

2/21/2014
 
Ottawa University is pleased to announce that eight students have been awarded scholarships as part of its fall Top Scholars competition. Each of the recipients is anticipated to be a full-time OU student beginning the fall of 2014.

Taylor Thompson of Abilene, KS; Tag Oldham of Oswego, KS; and Noah Packard of Derby, KS, were each awarded the Presidential Scholarship for their four-year educational tenure at OU. The Presidential Scholarship is a full tuition scholarship, with other benefits and honors, valued at a minimum of $80,000. Recipients will be required to continue their academic and leadership excellence throughout their time at OU.

Scholarship competitors were selected based on academic criteria (3.5 or higher GPA, 25 or higher ACT score, top 1/3 of class) and portfolios submitted prior to the competition. Following on-campus essays and panel interviews, the four Presidential Scholarships were awarded from 14 students invited to compete.

President Kevin C. Eichner was personally involved in the selection process and is looking forward to the contributions the Presidential Scholars will make on the OU campus. “Ottawa University’s Presidential Scholarship is the most prestigious of any we offer. Recipients are not only outstanding scholars; they are expected to distinguish themselves as leaders in many facets of student life. Many have gone on to exceptional careers in business, human services, the arts, education, and numerous other fields.”

Lyndi McIntyre of Wichita, KS; Tarryn Alloway of Parsons, KS; Christian Provence of Frontenac, KS; and Callee Sprew of Topeka, KS, were each award the Provost Scholarship for their four-year educational tenure at OU. The Provost Scholarship is a three-quarter tuition scholarship, with other benefits and honors, valued at a minimum of $60,000. Recipients will be required to continue their academic and leadership excellence throughout their time at OU.

Scholarship competitors were selected based on academic criteria (3.5 or higher GPA, 25 or higher ACT score) and portfolios submitted prior to the competition. Following on-campus essays and panel interviews, the four Provost Scholarships were awarded from 14 students invited to compete.

Executive Vice President and University Provost Dr. Terry Haines was personally involved in the selection process and is looking forward to the contributions the Provost Scholars will make on the OU campus. “We are excitedly awaiting the arrival of the Provost Scholars to our campus this fall, and we expect that their contributions, both in and out of the classroom, will have an immediate positive impact on the experience of our entire student body.”
