Madelyn Laughlin of Athens receives a $32,000 UIS Capital Scholars Honors Program Deans Scholarship

Madelyn Laughlin of Athens, a senior at Athens Community High School, has been admitted to the University of Illinois Springfield and awarded a $32,000 Capital Scholars Honors Program Deans Scholarship for tuition over 4 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 Athens High, she is a member of the National Honor Society, leadership committee, WYSE team and the math team. She also plays soccer and basketball.

Laughlin will major in psychology at UIS and would like to pursue a career involving legal studies and psychology.

“UIS feels like the best academic choice to continue my education with a challenging and innovative curriculum,” she said.

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 $32,000 Capital Scholars Honors Program Deans Scholarship, the student must earn a 27 to a 29 on their ACT or a minimum of 1280 SAT and hold a minimum high school GPA of 3.75 or above.
