Ancilla College is rewarding students who finish at the top of their class.
Beginning in 2015, Ancilla college will be offering free tuition scholarships to top graduates from Marshall, Fulton, Porter, Pulaski, Jasper, Starke, LaPorte, St. Joseph, Elkhart and Kosciusko Counties.
President Ken Zirkle said top students can get their college journey started with the Valedictorian-Salutatorian Scholarship. The college will offer as much as $13,500 each year to local graduates who graduated at the top of their high school class and commit to attend Ancilla College. Local salutatorians will be offered up to $10,000 in free tuition.
Some schools do not offer the titles of valedictorian or salutatorian. In those cases, Ancilla will evaluate students based on class rank.
Ancilla offered over $900,000 in academics, need-based, and athletic scholarships last school year. Over 93 percent of students at Ancilla received financial aid of some kind. Four hundred students are currently enrolled in 18 degree programs.
