Friday, March 04, 2011
CANTON, Mo. – Culver-Stockton College is proud to announce eight students have been awarded full-tuition scholarships for their outstanding academic achievements. The awards were granted based on the results of the Pillars for Excellence Scholarship Competition held Saturday, February 19 at Culver-Stockton.
Only a select few students are invited to compete each year for this full-tuition merit scholarship. These students, who have been admitted for the Fall semester at Culver-Stockton College, successfully met the stringent academic standards required to compete. On competition day, faculty, alumni and former Pillars winners interviewed the candidates. Students also wrote an essay responding to a question asked of all competitors. This year’s candidates averaged a 3.81 grade point average (based on a 4.0 scale) and a 27 ACT score, and these eight Pillars Scholars have emerged as being among the best of this very impressive group of high achieving students.
