Alyssa Pavlacic of St. Charles receives a $38,000 scholarship from the University of Illinois Springfield

Alyssa Pavlacic of St. Charles, Missouri, a senior at Saint Charles West High School, has been admitted to the University of Illinois Springfield for Fall Semester 2019 and awarded a $38,000 Capital Scholars Honors Program Deans Scholarship for tuition over 4 years. She plans to major in accountancy and will play on the UIS Prairie Stars women’s soccer team.

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 Saint Charles West, she is a member of the varsity soccer, swimming and cross country teams. She also plays in the orchestra and is a member of Future Business Leaders of America, the National Honor Society, Science Club, Friends of Rachel Club and Game Enthusiast Club.

“I am choosing UIS because it is a smaller school and has an accounting program with a good reputation and accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB),” she said. “Small schools work better for me because you can get to know your professors and get more attention from them if needed. I like going to teachers with questions to clarify my understanding of topics, and I feel that smaller schools’ teachers are more reachable.”

Following graduation, she plans to pursue a career in international public accounting and obtain her CPA license.

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 $38,000 Capital Scholars Honors Program Deans Scholarship, the student 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.
