Marissa Gooch of Springfield receives a $6,000 scholarship from the University of Illinois Springfield

Marissa Gooch of Springfield, a senior at Springfield High School, has been admitted to the University of Illinois Springfield for Fall Semester 2019 and awarded a $6,000 Lincoln Merit Scholarship for tuition over four years. She plans to major in visual arts 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 Springfield High, she is a member of the choir and the Anime Club.

She says she chose UIS because “it's a small campus, close to home.”

Following graduation, she plans to become an animation artist.

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 $6,000 over four years, students must earn an 18 to a 20 on their ACT or a minimum of 940 SAT and hold a minimum high school GPA of 3.25.
