UJ Awards Two Full-Tuition Scholarships

University of Jamestown hosted 40 prospective students during its Fall Wilson Scholarship Day on Nov. 18, 2019. After participating in on-campus interviews and writing an essay, two high school students, Ema Lee (Casselton, ND) and Kristi Carpenter (Moffit, ND), were awarded full-tuition scholarships.

“Both of this year’s winners truly exemplify what it means to be a Jimmie. Not only are they strong academically, their commitment to community and those around them was clear in their interviews and essays,” said Greg Ulland, UJ’s Vice President of Enrollment Management. “Any student that attends the Wilson Competition should consider themselves part of an elite group of young adults, and ones we would be honored to have join our campus community.”

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.

The next Wilson Scholarship Day will be held on Jan. 20, 2020. Students interested in registering for the event should contact the Office of Admissions at 1-800-336-2554 or admission@uj.edu.

“Of course, there are great financial incentives for students to attend the Wilson Competition,” continued Ulland. “An even bigger benefit of attendance, however, is the chance for these like-minded students to make connections with one another and with the UJ community long before they actually enroll.”
