Congratulations 2016 President’s Scholars

You and your peers were selected from nearly 600 highly qualified applicants.  We commend you for your scholarship, leadership, and school and community service, and look forward to the many contributions you will make to the PLU community.

As a PLU President’s Scholar, you will receive a $25,000 merit scholarship per year. You also have the opportunity to visit the PLU campus February 19 & 20 to interview for the $30,000 per year Harstad Founder’s Scholarships and the full tuition Regents’ Scholarships.*

*Please note that any Presidential Scholarship replaces the lower PLU academic merit scholarship you may have already been awarded.

Below the list of this year’s President’s Scholars you’ll find links to programs in which scholars participate, as well as further resources.

We look forward to seeing you at the Presidential Scholarships Weekend.
