Lourdes University would like to recognize Marissa Miller from Fayette, OH, as a recipient of the Lourdes University Presidential Scholarship this 2014 fall semester. In order to be eligible for the benefits that this competitive, merit-based scholarship offers, a minimal 3.5 cumulative GPA is required, and students must have intentions to pursue a bachelor degree as a full-time student at the Sylvania campus.
The Presidential Scholarship reaps instantaneous rewards for the student, offering up to $8,000 in tuition assistance per academic year. Immediacy doesn’t necessarily mean that the rewards are short-lived, as this scholarship is also renewable. Recipients who maintain a 3.0 GPA while enrolled at Lourdes, as well as remain committed to a full-time course load, will be eligible to renew the scholarship over a maximum of four years, earning up to $32,000 in tuition assistance.
Marissa, a recent graduate from Evergreen High School, is in the pre-nursing program. She will discover that students with varying levels of expertise in this field can benefit from their decision to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree to either begin or further their nursing career.
This scholarship does more than weigh the value of past and continual academic achievement; it welcomes students in with all of their exhibited potential. The scholarship is an investment in these students as they are encouraged to take part in the growing Lourdes community. The Presidential Scholarship enables hardworking students to enjoy all of the academic, cultural, and social growth opportunities in the area of Sylvania, OH.
