Scholarship Recognition Day activities begin Feb 22 at USD
In addition to competing for USD’s most prestigious scholarships, students and their families attending Scholarship Recognition Day will participate in campus forums, tour USD and meet with faculty and researchers as well as receive information on becoming part of the USD Honors Program, learn about USD Global Learning opportunities and register for fall 2014 semester classes.
“Scholarship Recognition Day is a great weekend for the University of South Dakota to share information with academically-gifted students and their families about the University’s outstanding programs, our extraordinary faculty and to showcase our state-of-the-art facilities,” said Joni Freidel, director of scholarship administration at USD. “This is a unique opportunity for high school seniors to learn firsthand about college and the programs that will, ultimately, impact their career paths.”
USD’s most prestigious scholarships available to incoming freshmen are the George S. Mickelson Scholarship and the USD Presidential-Alumni Scholarship. Both of these prestigious awards provide recipients with four-year, renewable scholarships provided the students meet the correct criteria. Additional scholarships high school seniors will interview for during Scholarship Recognition Day weekend include the Ullyot Lakota Scholarship, awarded to Native American students who are members of recognized tribes; the School of Law Honor Scholar Program; the Sanford School of Medicine Alumni Student Scholars Program; the Dorothy C. Schieffer Political Science Scholarship; the Beacom School of Business Scholarship; the Walter A. and Lucy Yoshioka Buhler Scholarship; and the Al Neuharth Excellence in Journalism Scholarships. Scholarship recipients will be notified next month following the interview process and recommendations from the University Scholarship Committee.
Scholarship Recognition Day also features Academic and Information Showcases, programs designed to introduce future students to USD’s academic and extracurricular programs, including study abroad opportunities at USD, undergraduate research, create gold nanoparticles in a chemistry lab or find out what it’s like to be a TV news anchor.
