2011 National Scholarship Providers Association
College & University Scholarship Provider of the Year Award
This October, the LSA Undergraduate Recruitment and Scholarship Program was named the 2011 College & University Scholarship Provider of the Year by the acclaimed National Scholarship Providers Association. Each team member in the office has contributed to building an exceptional scholarship program for undergraduates enrolled in the College of LSA. Significant support also comes from the LSA Office of Development, Marketing and Communications.
The honor, sponsored by Fastweb and its publisher Mark Kantrowitz, distinguishes programs that go above and beyond to provide scholarships and other vital resources to students. Along with recognition of exceptional work, the Scholarship Provider of the Year Award includes a $2,500 scholarship to help with the costs of a student's higher education.
An excerpt from the press release details some of the outstanding work the team has done to earn the award:
The LSA Scholarship Program awards more than $8 million per year to more than 1,000 undergraduate students. The team has overseen a five-fold increase in scholarships over the last decade, and a shift from merit-based scholarships to scholarships that enable access and success for students from diverse, underrepresented and at-risk populations.
