Dillon student awarded scholarship at Pacific Lutheran University

Summit County High School senior Mac Hiller has been Pacific Lutheran University’s President’s Scholarship worth $26,000 a year, which comes with the opportunity to earn more. Pacific Lutheran University is a private liberal arts college based in Tacoma, Washington.

The President’s Scholarship is one of the top academic and leadership scholarships offered by PLU. For the 2019-20 academic year, over 500 incoming first-year students applied who met the high eligibility standards. Just 127 President’s Scholars were selected based on academic achievement, service and leadership, as well as the potential to effect positive change and leadership in both the academic and co-curricular life of PLU. This year’s President’s Scholarship recipients scored on average a 1335 SAT test score, 29 ACT test score, and have a 3.98 GPA.

These top students have been invited to interview on the PLU campus in February to compete for the next level of PLU Presidential Scholarships — one of 10 $31,000 per year Harstad Founder’s Scholarships or one of five full-tuition Regents’ Scholarships.
