Redmond High School senior Isaac Hathaway was recently awarded a $40,000 Presidential Scholarship from Oregon State University.
The award provides up to $40,000 in funding during the student’s undergraduate career ($10,000 per year, renewable for up to four years total).
“As Oregon State University’s most prestigious award for in-state undergraduates, the Presidential Scholarship is designed to reward academic excellence and inspire those selected to continue to be a positive force in the world. Donor support helps keep these talented Oregonians in-state,” – OSU Foundation website.
To be considered for the Presidential Scholarship, students must be current Oregon high school seniors, be considered Oregon residents at time of application for admission, have a minimum 3.85 unweighted high school GPA, and have a minimum score of 1360 on the new SAT or 29 on the ACT. In addition, Hathaway was evaluated on his scholarship application and OSU’s application essay component, which is comprised of six, short-answer questions.
Hathaway also competes in cross country and tennis at Redmond High, while maintaining a 4.0 grade point average. Last summer he worked for the Redmond School District as an intern in the technology department, providing him valuable, hands-on work experience.
