Kenedy Cox of Alton awarded a $28,000 UIS Capital Scholars Honors Program Scholarship

Kenedy Cox of Alton, a senior at Alton High School, has been admitted to the University of Illinois Springfield for fall semester 2020 and awarded a $28,000 Capital Scholars Honors Program 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 Alton High School, she is a member of the National Honor Society, Spanish Club and Biology Club.

“UIS offers me the opportunity to go to college almost debt free,” she said. “They have a great scholarship for the honors program and an extremely safe campus. The professors are highly regarded and two of my sisters already attend UIS.”

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 $28,000 Capital Scholars Honors Program Scholarship, the student must earn a 24 to a 26 on their ACT or a minimum of 1160 SAT and hold a minimum high school GPA of 4.0 or above.

For more information on scholarships, contact the UIS Office of Financial Assistance at 217-206-6724 or or visit their website for a full list of scholarship opportunities.

Students may apply for admission to UIS free of charge for the spring, summer and fall 2020 terms.
