NSU IS INCREASING FOUR-YEAR LEADERSHIP SCHOLARSHIPS
Northeastern State University will increase the number of President Leadership Class scholarships awarded to incoming freshmen each year. The President’s Leadership Class scholarship will be awarded to 20 incoming freshmen in the fall 2018 semester and will increase to 25 over the next two years. The expansion will allow for a more comprehensive scholarship experience for student leaders.
In the fall 2018 semester, incoming members of the President’s Leadership Class will receive more than $5,000 per semester for four years for housing, tuition and foundation support.
“The President’s Leadership Class is among the very best student aid programs in the state in terms of length (four years) and total value,” said NSU President Steve Turner. “By increasing the number of leadership scholarships over the next two years, we are demonstrating our commitment to meet our state’s need for highly skilled college graduates.”
Applicants for the President’s Leadership Class should display outstanding leadership capabilities and must have an exceptionally strong academic record. High school seniors are required to have an ACT composite score of 20 or higher for consideration. Applications are available online at Scholarships.NSUOK.edu.
