OTTAWA, Kan. – Ottawa University is pleased to announce that Kourtney Brumley of McPherson, is the recipient of one of six Provost Scholarships awarded for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Brumley is the daughter of Brian Brumley and is a student at Elyria Christian School.

Provost Scholars receive a three-quarter tuition scholarship, as well as other benefits and honors, during their four-year educational tenure at OU – a value of at least $60,000. The recipient will be required to continue his or her academic and leadership excellence throughout that time.

Scholarship competitors were selected based on academic criteria (3.5 or higher GPA, 25 or higher ACT score) and portfolios submitted prior to the competition. Following on-campus essays and panel interviews, the six Provost Scholarship winners were chosen.

“We are excitedly awaiting the arrival of the Provost Scholars to our campus this fall and we expect that their contributions, both in and out of the classroom, will have an immediate positive impact on the experience of our entire student body,” said Dr. Terry Haines, University Provost, who was personally involved in the selection process.

Provost scholarships recipients are also eligible for financial assistance up to $2,500 for a school sponsored travel abroad experience after the student’s second year of academic study.
