Shane Cook, a freshman of Biola University and resident of Bolingbrook, was among 82 students who received one of the college's highest scholarships - the President's scholarship - for the 2013/2014 academic year.
Freshmen are eligible for the President's scholarship - $10,000 per year - if upon entering the university, they meet the requirements of the scholarship. Approximately 6 percent of this year's incoming class received this award.
Students are considered for this scholarship upon admission to the University based on their GPA and SAT scores. The requirements of the scholarship are a GPA of at least 3.5 and a combined SAT score of 1430, both math and English scores.
The scholarship recipients were honored with a special dessert reception hosted by President Corey, where they were celebrated for their achievements.
Students must maintain a GPA of 3.5 to continue to receive the scholarship the following year.
