UW-River Falls Students Awarded National Scholarships
Two UW-River Falls students have been awarded Horatio Alger National Scholarships.
Mary E. Hollister, a sophomore pre-elementary education major from Mondovi, and Amanda Zopp, a junior broad area agriculture major from Sheldon, were granted the scholarship incentive to pursue their dream of achieving a college education.
The Horatio Alger Association, a nonprofit educational organization founded in 1947, focuses on recognizing outstanding Americans that have provided a critical link to motivate and educate America's youth. The Association awards more than $1 million in grants and college scholarships annually to secondary school students who have overcome adversity and are recognized for their outstanding community involvement.
