Lee seniors Jackson, Timothy, Andrew, Zoe and Taylor received quite a surprise recently; they were each awarded with a Presidential Fellow Scholarship from The University of Texas at Tyler (UT Tyler). UT Tyler representatives joined Lee administrators and the students’ friends and family in the library to make the presentation.
The Presidential Fellow Scholarship covers full tuition, fees, books, room and board for each student. In order to be considered for the scholarship, students must earn a minimum score of ACT 29 or SAT 1350, hold a 3.00 or higher GPA, submit scholarship and FAFSA applications and complete an interview.
In order for the scholarship to renew each year over four years, students must complete 15 credit hours at UT Tyler for the semester(s) awarded, maintain a minimum 3.00 GPA at UT Tyler, participate in the Presidential Fellow student service program, and remain in good standing.
Congratulations students on this impressive accomplishment.
