CAITLIN DENNEN, a student at Oak Harbor High School, has been named a Pacific Lutheran University President’s Scholar and awarded a $30,000 per year President’s Scholarship — with the opportunity to compete for more.
Dennen was one of 123 students selected for the scholarship offered by PLU.
Over 400 incoming first-year students who met the high eligibility standards applied. President’s Scholars are 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 have on average a 3.99 GPA.
These students are invited to interview in February to compete for the next level of PLU Presidential Scholarships — one of 10 $35,000 per year Harstad Founder’s Scholarships or one of five full-tuition Regents’ Scholarships.
