STEUBENVILLE, OH-- Sixty-seven of the best and brightest students who have applied to Franciscan University for fall 2009 showed up on campus early to compete for two full-tuition scholarships.
The sixth annual Father Michael Scanlan Scholarship Competition took place February 13. All the students competing had grade point averages at or near 4.0, ACT scores of 31 to 36, and SAT scores of 1360 to 1600.
This year’s contestants represented 31 states. Their competition consisted of an oral interview before a panel of judges, a written essay, and a group project. The students also attended Mass, went on campus tours, and in other ways experienced the academic, spiritual, and social life for which Franciscan is so well known.
This year’s Father Michael Scanlan Scholarship recipients are Angie Cosentino, who is from Gilbert, Ariz., and plans to major in theology and philosophy, and Jessica Felice from Hummelstown, Penn., who intends to major in catechetics and psychology. Congratulations to Angie and Jessica and to all of this year’s Father Michael Scanlan Scholars.
The Father Michael Scanlan Scholarship Competition is named for Father Michael Scanlan, TOR, who served as Franciscan University president from 1974-2000 and is currently the University’s chancellor.
