Gannon University Students Compete for Full-Tuition Scholarships

Posted: March 17, 2014

More than 100 highly qualified students showed off creations that ranged from works of art, musical pieces and video production to golf course design and baton skills in the annual full-tuition scholarship competition held at Gannon University. Student presenters were judged by panels of faculty, staff and administrators, not only on their presentations but also on a question-and-answer session that followed. In the end, seven top-scoring students were awarded full-tuition scholarship offers to attend Gannon.

"The students invited to participate represent the top ten percent of our acceptance pool for the 2014 fall academic year" said Tom Camillo, director of undergraduate admissions. "These are high-quality academic students who are also heavily involved in their schools and communities. It is a pleasure to interact with them during the competition and imagine the possibilities they may achieve at Gannon."

Narrowing down the winners was no easy task, however the following individuals were offered full-tuition scholarships:

 

 

Other full tuition scholarship awards were offered to Maureen Grady from Rockford, Ill.; Rebecca Jasen from Buffalo, N.Y.;  and Resham Dhaduk from Jersey City, N.J. In addition to the full-tuition scholarship offers, all students who participated  received an increase in their merit scholarship award simply in recognition of their achievements and worthy presentations.
