University of Mississippi boosts amounts of leadership scholarships
For hundreds of high school student body presidents, valedictorians and salutatorians; Eagle Scouts; and participants in Mississippi Boys State and Girls State, a University of Mississippi education just became a much better value.The university has increased the amounts for several of its “leadership scholarships” by 50 percent. A new scholarship also has been created for any entering freshman who participated in Mississippi Boys State or Girls State.
The idea is to recognize high-achieving students and encourage them to continue to aim high, said Whitman Smith, Ole Miss director of enrollment services.
