U of Dubuque hosts Century Scholars

     More than 50 high school seniors attended the University of Dubuque's Second Century Scholars Program on Friday, Feb. 18, on campus. Monticello High School students that attended were Elise Kehoe, daughter of Jean and Dave Kehoe and Kendall Ruden, daughter of Danielle and Nick Ruden

     The program awards two renewable full-tuition scholarships as well as significant one-time scholarships to incoming first-year University of Dubuque (UD) students who show a wide-ranging curiosity about their world, a strong capacity for self-discipline, and a passion for academic excellence in service to their communities.

     In order to be considered for a Second Century Scholars Award, students must have a minimum high school grade point average of 3.7 and participate in the scholars' day on campus. The day included a series of interviews and a writing exercise. Additionally, students learned about the UD's Scholar-Leader Honors Program and met with faculty and students. The day concluded with a dinner and recognition ceremony.

     Students were presented a Certificate of Achievement by UD Chairman of the Board of Trustees Joseph Chlapaty (C'68, DHL'98) and his spouse, Linda, during the recognition ceremony.
