$3 million WSU scholarship program targets Washington high school seniors

HIGH-ACHIEVING Washington high school seniors who choose to enroll at Washington State University could share more than $3 million in scholarship awards under the University’s new Regents Scholars Program.

“The program aims to recognize outstanding seniors by acknowledging their accomplishments and offering them opportunities for significant support toward their education at WSU,” President V. Lane Rawlins said.

High school principals in the state received nomination forms for the Class of 2002 that had to be returned to WSU by September 15. Beginning in February, the principals will be asked to nominate members of the junior class—the Class of 2003—for the scholarship. Each principal can nominate up to two students from the high school’s graduating class.

Every nominee who attends WSU will receive a $2,500 University Regents Achievement Scholarship that is renewable for a second year. From an estimated 1,000 students statewide, WSU will select 100 for an additional $1,500, also renewable for a second year.

From the 100 chosen for additional scholarship support, WSU will select 25 as Regents Scholars who will be awarded a full scholarship valued at $14,000 per year for four years of successful academic progress.

Each student must have a minimum 3.80 grade-point average with a PSAT/SAT score of 1250 or an ACT score of 28. The students’ academic strengths and interests, leadership capabilities, and extracurricular and community involvement will also be evaluated.

Washington high school seniors and families interested in the scholarship program should contact their high school principal.
