High school seniors get $10.4 million
head start on a Manchester College degree
Manchester College is awarding more than $10.4 million in academic scholarships to 181 top high school seniors.
The four-year scholarships range from $52,000 Trustee Scholarships to two full-tuition Honors Scholarships valued at more than $96,500 each. All are competitive, awarded for academic achievement and impressive presentation at Scholarship Day.
“Despite a difficult economy, Manchester College remains focused on making higher education affordable and accessible,” said Dave McFadden, executive vice president. “Some of the best students in the region are choosing Manchester. They will help make our strong programs even stronger.”
The College, which offers more than 55 areas of study, has received a record number of applications for the fall 2010 class. Students are showing particular interest in pre-pharmacy, in anticipation of joining the inaugural fall 2012 class of Manchester’s pending School of Pharmacy. The College will begin the accreditation process for the new school this spring, after hiring its founding dean.
Manchester offers a Triple Guarantee to enhance accessibility to college: financial aid for every student, a degree in four years and a job or admission to graduate study within six months of graduation.
In addition, Fast Forward gives bright, motivated students opportunity to complete their bachelor’s degrees within three years, getting them into their careers quicker without sacrificing the Manchester College experience.
