    COLLEGE SPECIFIC SCHOLARSHIPS

    Most of our state-supported universities choose their recipients from outstanding high school graduates who file an application with the individual university, complete ACT testing by October or December of their senior year with a minimum composite score of 25, and have a minimum 3.0 GPA.  Students should have ACT scores sent directly to colleges.  Application forms can be obtained from the university’s scholarship and testing office.
