Caleb Hudson, a freshman of Biola University and resident of DeKalb, was among 92 students who received the college’s highest scholarship, the President’s scholarship, for the 2014-2015 academic year.
Freshmen are eligible for the $10,000 President’s scholarship if they meet the requirements upon entering the university. Approximately 9 percent of this year’s incoming class received this award.
Students are considered for this scholarship based on a calculation of both their GPA and SAT/ACT test scores. A qualifying combination is an unweighted GPA of 3.6 and a combined SAT score of 1390 (both math and English scores), or an ACT of 32.
The scholarship recipients were honored with a special dessert reception hosted by the university’s president, where they were celebrated for their achievements.
Students must maintain a GPA of 3.2 to continue receiving this scholarship the following year.
