Five high school students who plan to attend University of Wisconsin-Stout have been awarded $5,000 scholarships.

The Stout Scholarship is 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:

•   Stephanie Cran, Amery High School, Amery, mathematics education

•   Jill Kaiser, Centennial High School, Circle Pines, Minn., applied mathematics

•   Christine Leonard, Waconia High School, Waconia, Minn., mathematics and science education

•   Cody Machak, Menasha High School, Menasha, game design and development with a concentration in computer science

•   Tyler Michaletz, Aitkin High School, Aitkin, Minn., graphic design

They were part of a group of 70 high school students who visited UW-Stout recently for Stout Scholars Day. All students in the group are eligible for one of two types of scholarships, based on ACT score, class rank and grade-point average.

The other students who visited on Scholars Day were offered a renewable Chancellor’s Scholarship of $4,000 their first year and $2,000 their sophomore year.

The students were interviewed on campus as part of the evaluation process.

“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 strong academic programs at UW-Stout.”

The Stout University Foundation provides financial support for the scholarships. For more information, go to http://www.uwstout.edu/foundation.
