Three high school seniors have been selected to receive up to a $20,000 scholarship from University of Wisconsin-Stout.
The Stout Scholarship is $5,000, renewable for up to four years, or a maximum of $20,000 for each student.
The recipients, their hometowns and their planned fields of study are:
• Zion Guzman, Presque Isle, entertainment design
• Stephanie Neas, Fond du Lac, applied mathematics and computer science
• Meghan Olson, Rosemount, Minn., retail merchandising and management
They were part of a group of 77 high school students who visited UW-Stout recently for Stout Scholars Day. All students in the group were eligible for one of two types of scholarships, based on ACT score, class rank and grade-point average.
The other 74 students who visited on Scholars Day were offered a renewable Chancellor’s Scholarship of $3,000 their first year and $1,500 their sophomore year.
The students were interviewed on campus as part of the evaluation process. They also attended a university class in session, visited a residence hall and had lunch. Their parents and guardians were escorted on a separate tour of campus.
“We are pleased to offer these awards to this group of talented students,” said Mark Parsons, vice chancellor for University Advancement and Marketing. “As leaders at their high schools, they are prepared to take full advantage of our excellent academic programs at UW-Stout.”
Financial support for the scholarships is provided by donors through the Stout University Foundation. For more information, click here.
