UJ Awards Two Full-Tuition Scholarships
University of Jamestown hosted 39 prospective students during its Winter Wilson Scholarship Day on Jan. 20, 2020. After participating in on-campus interviews and writing an essay, two high school students, Bonnie Thompson (Dickinson, ND) and Isaiah Reis (Ellendale, ND), were awarded full-tuition scholarships.
Established in memory of the late Dr. John L. Wilson and his wife, Palma, the Wilson Competitive Scholarship Program provides four full-tuition scholarships for four years.
Each fall and winter, University of Jamestown invites admitted students with a 3.5 GPA and 24 ACT to compete in their prestigious Wilson Scholarship Day Event. Qualifying students interview with members of the faculty and compose a brief essay. The top two students from each competition receive a Wilson Full-Tuition Scholarship. All other participants are granted a Distinguished Scholarship worth $1,000 per year.
