Emma Curtin of Stonington receives a $30,000 scholarship from the University of Illinois Springfield

Emma Curtin of Stonington, a May 2018 graduate of Taylorville High School, has been admitted to the University of Illinois Springfield for Fall Semester 2019 and awarded a $30,000 Lincoln Merit Scholarship for tuition over four years. She plans to major in management at UIS.

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 Taylorville High, she was a member of the student council and the National Honor Society. She was also part of the cross country team and the spring musical.

“I am choosing UIS to be closer to home and to take classes that will challenge me academically, according to my major,” she said.

Following graduation, she plans to earn her master’s degree and enter the workforce.

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 $30,000 over four years, students must earn a 27 to a 29 on their ACT or a minimum of 1280 SAT and hold a minimum high school GPA of 4.0 or above.
