Scholarships awarded to Crimson Scholar Day participants

crimson scholar day hcOn February 8, 2015, students from ten states competed for Hastings College’s top academic scholarship – the Walter Scott Scholarship. This full-tuition scholarship was awarded to two students:

  • Carly Cremers of Columbus, Nebraska, and
  • Lyndsay Ruane of Colorado Springs, Colorado.

To qualify for what is known as the Crimson Scholars Day competitions, students must earn a score of 26 or higher on the ACT,  maintain a 3.75 grade point average or higher, and be accepted to Hastings College.

Walter Scott Scholarship — $12,110
Trustee Scholarship — $9,000
