We know that education creates opportunities, and opportunities help a student realize his or her dreams.
Scholarships have a far-reaching impact that goes way beyond tuition assistance. Scholarships change lives through the opportunities they provide, and recipients feel that life-changing effect. At Post University, we offer several on-campus scholarship opportunities. One of the most prestigious awards at the University is our Malcolm Baldrige Scholarship. This award offers two outstanding students, who will pursue degrees in business, four-year full-tuition scholarships.
This year, our recipients of Malcolm Baldrige Scholarship are:
Emily Tarko, from Windsor Locks High School in Connecticut and Reid DeGroff from Plainedge High School in Massapequa, New York. Both incoming students will major in business administration and play women’s softball and men’s lacrosse respectively, both are Division II sports at Post University.
“Post University is proud to award the Baldrige Scholarship as a means to reward and celebrate the academic success of two high-achieving high school students,” said Post University Provost, Dr. Elizabeth Johnson. “We are excited to have Emily and Reid join us in the Fall as Post Eagles and look forward to watching these two talented students grow into successful business drivers of tomorrow.”
Each scholarship is valued at $113,000. The award honors the namesake of the University’s business school who served as U.S. Secretary of Commerce from 1981 to 1987.
Scholarship recipients must hold at least a 3.65-grade point average or above, an SAT composite score of 1160 or an ACT score of 24, a personal resume, two letters of recommendation, and submit a 500-word essay on what an organization’s role is, or should be, in promoting social responsibility. A panel of Post University faculty and administration selected the students.
