Quentin Reese receives a $12,000 University of Illinois Springfield scholarship

Quentin Reese of Las Cruces, New Mexico, a senior at Centennial High School, has been admitted to the University of Illinois Springfield and awarded a $12,000 Lincoln Scholarship for tuition over four years.

The scholarship is awarded based on GPA and ACT/SAT scores and can be renewed for a total of four years if the student maintains college GPA requirements.

At UIS, Reese plans to major in sports management and play on the UIS Prairie Stars NCAA Division II men’s soccer team.

“I'm choosing UIS because this was the best option to play soccer while getting an education,” he said.

Following graduation, he plans to play soccer in a professional setting and eventually work in the sports management field.

All incoming UIS freshmen are eligible to apply for Lincoln Merit Scholarships. The amount awarded is based upon the incoming student’s ACT or SAT score. To receive $12,000 over four years, students must earn a 21 to a 23 on their ACT or a minimum of 1060 SAT and hold a minimum high school GPA of 3.5.
