Zygfried Kurzymski receives a $12,000 scholarship from the University of Illinois Springfield

Zygfried Kurzymski of Park Ridge, a recent graduate of Maine South High School, has been admitted to the University of Illinois Springfield for fall semester 2019 and awarded a $12,000 Lincoln Merit Scholarship for tuition over four years. He plans to major biology with a focus in pre-medicine 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 Maine South High School, he was a member of the cross country and track teams, the Computer Science Club and Hawk Links.

“I chose UIS because it has a fantastic biology program with plenty of research opportunities,” he said.

Following graduation from UIS, he plans to attend medical school.

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 $12,000 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 3.0 or above.
