Five chosen to be Alumni Laureate Scholars

BOWLING GREEN, O.—Five incoming first-year students have been named Alumni Laureate Scholars at Bowling Green State University.

Alexandra Bandy of Mansfield, Joseph Chenevey of Akron, Brian Gulko of Solon, Stephanie Kuharik of St. George, Ontario, and Samantha Peña of Ottawa, Ohio, each will receive full tuition and a $1,000 book award annually. The students will also work with alumni leaders and participate in leadership workshops and community activities.

Alumni Laureate Scholars are chosen on the basis of leadership skills, citizenship, achievement, personal integrity and involvement, in and out of the classroom. Scholarship criteria include a grade point average of 3.5 or above and a minimum score of either 27 on the ACT or 1100 on the SAT.

The BGSU Alumni Association created the program in 2002 with an initial investment of $1 million. The first group of students received the scholarships for the 2003-04 school year. The number of scholarships awarded varies each year depending on funding.
