Abigail Way of Plano receives a UIS Capital Scholars Honors Program Provost’s Scholarship

Abigail Way of Plano, a senior at Plano High School, has been admitted to the University of Illinois Springfield and awarded a $40,000 Capital Scholars Honors Program Provost’s 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 Plano High School, she is a member of the scholastic bowl team, National Honor Society, thespian society, student council and the science club.

At UIS, Way plans to major in environmental studies.

“I'm choosing UIS because I want a small college that has lots of opportunities for involvement and education, which is what University of Illinois Springfield provides,” she said.

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 $40,000 Capital Scholars Honors Program Provost’s Scholarship, the student must earn a 30 to a 31 on their ACT or a minimum of 1390 SAT and hold a minimum high school GPA of 4.0 or above.
