    The University of West Alabama’s Tutwiler Scholars Program has opened its application process for the 2018 academic year.

    Applications for the program will be accepted now through February 1 from incoming freshmen entering the fall class of 2018. From the field of applicants five scholars will be chosen.

    Established in 2015, the Tutwiler Scholars Program seeks high-achieving, high-potential students who have demonstrated initiative, creativity, intellectual passion and curiosity, and a commitment to making positive contributions to society.

    “The students who are selected for this program will reap the rewards of their demonstrated success as they enjoy opportunities that are sure to not only enhance their university experience but also prepare them in areas that they might not otherwise have the chance to explore,” explained Dr. Lesa Shaul, director of the Tutwiler Scholars Program.

    The benefits of the program include supplemental scholarships, renewable each fall semester with the maintenance of a 3.5 GPA; a travel stipend for study-abroad semesters or international study tours; a technology allowance for state-of-the-art laptops, tablets, or touchscreen smart devices; participation in unique and enriching social, cultural, artistic, and scientific enterprises; and targeted mentoring by some of UWA’s most decorated and dedicated professors.

    Eligible applicants should be incoming freshmen for Fall 2018. An ACT composite score of 28 or higher is preferred.

    The deadline for all application materials is February 1, 2018.
