Andrew Sweetalla of Appleton, Wisconsin, a senior at Appleton East High School, has been admitted to the University of Illinois Springfield for Fall Semester 2019 and awarded a $6,000 Lincoln Merit Scholarship for tuition over four years. He will play on the UIS Prairie Stars baseball team and major in accountancy.

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 Appleton East, he plays baseball and is involved in student council and other volunteer groups.

Following graduation from UIS, he plans to become a certified public accountant (CPA).

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 $6,000 over four years, students must earn an 18 to a 20 on their ACT or a minimum of 940 SAT and hold a minimum high school GPA of 3.0.
