You have been selected to participate in the Distinguished Scholars Program on February 21, 2015.
The Distinguished Scholars Program is an opportunity for you to demonstrate your academic interests and talents with the possibility of earning additional scholarship money to attend Albion College. With your participation, you will be eligible to receive additional scholarship assistance; more than $250,000 was awarded to participants last year. One participant will receive a full tuition scholarship to attend Albion College!
You may choose to participate in one of these areas:
- Solve some of our math problems & present your solutions!
- Present on a topic of your choosing!
- Discuss an article that we provide!
You will be asked to present your work or lead a discussion for 15 minutes. Afterwards, a panel of faculty will discuss your presentation with you for another 15 minutes.
While on campus, we will make arrangements for you to tour campus or interview with one of our programs of distinction.
Why should I participate?
This opportunity helps you understand our hands-on, interdisciplinary approach to the liberal arts and sciences. We hope you will begin to understand the value of this type of education as a result of your participation.
The process of selecting your method of participation, preparing for the competition and then participating helps you experience the teaching and learning environment at Albion. You will also receive valuable feedback and encouragement from your panel of faculty.
The most effective way for us to identify promising artists and scholars is through in-person participation and dialog. This is your opportunity to show our faculty more about your future potential than may be apparent in your admission application and essay.
What if I don't want to compete?
Interview/Audition/Portfolio Day is an alternative opportunity for you to display your talents in the fine arts (music, theater, visual art) and/or schedule interviews with the Gerstacker Institute, Ford Institute, Environmental Center, and Honors Program.
Can I talk someone this opportunity?
Your admission counselor can help you decide which opportunity is right for you. In addition, we have a student mentor and some faculty mentors available to talk with you.
