Nicholas Barnhill of Belvidere receives a $14,000 scholarship from the University of Illinois Springfield

Nicholas Barnhill of Belvidere, a senior at Belvidere High School, has been admitted to the University of Illinois Springfield for Fall Semester 2019 and awarded a $14,000 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 Belvidere High, he’s involved in an environmental club called SRES.

He plans to major in accountancy at UIS and says he chose the school because “UIS is a central location for jobs and activities to participate in.”

Following graduation, he plans to start a full-time job.

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 $14,000 over four years, students must earn a 24 to a 26 on their ACT or a minimum of 1160 SAT and hold a minimum high school GPA of 3.5.
