The Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts is proud to announce the inaugural recipients of our Dean's Scholarships.

Five incoming freshman were selected for academic year 2011/2012.  They are: Thomas Marion, Lauren Llerandi, Enn Sapp, Chloe Stargel, and Katerina Jenkins.  (Pictured left to right with Associate Dean John Tone and Dean Jackie Royster. Ms. Jenkins is not pictured).

More than 160 high school students competed for the scholarships. They are awarded to incoming  freshmen with a record of academic excellence, visionary leadership, and outstanding public service. 

Dean Jacqueline Royster said, “We are so very proud to welcome this first cohort of young scholars.  It is our privilege to enlarge their opportunities to be among the innovators and problem solvers, the top tier leaders and global citizens that graduate from our technology-centered liberal arts degree programs.”

Scholarship recipients receive a $2000 award their first year, with opportunity to continue the scholarship, based upon merit, for three subsequent years. In addition to the financial award, Dean's Scholars meet personally with Deans Royster and Tone, as well as Georgia Tech executive administrators and faculty.  They also enjoy special opportunities designed to enhance their development as problem solvers, innovators, top tier leaders, and global citizens.

Application for Dean's Scholarships is a competitive, merit-based process.  Up to six new scholarships will be awarded each spring to high school students who enroll for fall semester in majors within the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.
