Scholarships Awarded to High School Seniors

Governors State University is awarding its most prestigious academic scholarships to six high school seniors from across the Midwest. The scholarships, funded by the GSU Foundation, are presented to students who have exhibited excellence in high school performance and civic engagement.

The elite Presidential Scholarship is awarded to high school seniors who have been notably engaged in their high school communities. This year, these full scholarships were awarded to Marina Ibrahim and Eunis Kukose, both of Tinley Park, IL. They will each receive tuition for four academic years, as well as a generous book store stipend and Silver Meal Plan each semester.

Provost Scholarship recipients are similarly based on superior high school performance. This year they were awarded to Megan Frick of Fulton, IL, and Alexandria Pavloski of Manteno, IL. These scholarships cover $4,000 of each student’s tuition annually and provide a bookstore stipend.

Also chosen for their success at the high school level, Dean’s Scholarships were awarded to Lexi Kavoric of Canton, OH, and Elise Moores of Chicago, IL. These students will receive $2,000 each year toward their tuition, as well as a bookstore stipend.

Set to graduate in 2021, these incoming students are recognized as exemplars of the fortitude and skills of a GSU scholar.
