The winners of this scholarship should be very proud – it is quite an achievement.”

To receive the scholarship, students must have a high school GPA of 4.0 or higher, score a 25 on the ACT or 1150 on the SAT, plan on living on campus while at UC, and participate in an interview with UC President Dr. Martin Roth while attending one of the University’s Scholarship Days events.
