BOWLING GREEN, O.—Five incoming freshmen have been selected to be the next class of Bowling Green State University Alumni Laureate Scholars.

They are Chris Dyer of Toledo, Robert Furia of West Chester, Tyler Gombash of Delta, Margaret Long of Kenton and Jacob West of Huber Heights.

The scholarship currently covers the cost of any educational expense up to the cost of tuition, is renewable for four years, and includes a $1,200 book award each year.

To be considered, students must be accepted to BGSU as first-year freshmen, have a 3.5 grade point average in high school, an ACT score at or above 27, or a score of 1100 or above on the SAT. Applicants must also complete an essay, document their leadership experience and be recommended for the scholarship.

As an Alumni Laureate Scholar, students take part in leadership workshops, community engagement activities and meetings with campus, community and alumni leaders and volunteers. They also participate in monthly group meetings, one-on-one sessions with the program adviser and group service projects.
