LU Retains Scholarship Offer for Students with 30 ACT

October 10, 2007

Lindenwood University is opening its doors to top students who have been squeezed out of Missouri’s Bright Flight grant program.

Lindenwood has long offered a near full-tuition scholarship for Missouri Bright Flight scholars. The university’s dean of admissions, Joe Parisi, said that scholarship offer will remain for all students who score a 30 or higher on the ACT—even though the state is changing the Bright Flight eligibility to a score of 31 or higher on the ACT.

“Those who have a 30 ACT will no longer be eligible for the $2,000 state Bright Flight grant, but we aren’t going to turn our backs on them,” said Parisi.

Parisi said Lindenwood has established a Presidential Scholarship for first-time freshmen who have scored a 30 on their ACT. They receive $14,200, plus an additional $2,400 work and learn award, covering the majority of their room, board and tuition.

Parisi said the candidates must meet all admission requirements, and must remain continuously enrolled as a full-time undergraduate resident student in good academic and social standing.

This fall, Lindenwood University welcomed a record 45 first-year students who scored a 30 or higher on the ACT. Parisi estimates Lindenwood now has 126 Bright Flight scholars on campus.
