Rece Finck of Hopedale receives a $20,000 scholarship from the University of Illinois Springfield

Rece Finck, a senior at Olympia High School in Stanford, Illinois, has been admitted to the University of Illinois Springfield and awarded a $20,000 Capital Scholars Honors 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 Olympia High School, Finck plays baseball and is a member of the Student Council, Bank Board, and Fellowship of Christian Athletes and is a Freshmen Mentor.

At UIS, Finck will play baseball for the Prairie Stars as he pursues a degree with an emphasis in sports management. He also plans to seek a master’s degree upon graduation.

The CAP Honors Program is a selective undergraduate program combining high standards and emphasis on excellence with a small residential college model, enrolling only about 100 first-year students each year. The program brings together intellectually strong students with talented, dedicated faculty to create a unique academic environment within the greater UIS community.

Capital Scholar Honors students participate in an interdisciplinary core curriculum designed to prepare students for their major and provide leadership opportunities.

In order to receive a $20,000 Capital Scholars Honors Scholarship, the student must earn a 24 to a 26 on their ACT or a minimum of 1160 SAT and hold a minimum high school GPA of 3.0.
