San Antonio Student Gets Top ASU Scholarship
April 06, 2015
The Distinguished Carr Scholarship is ASU’s most prestigious scholarship for academic achievement. To recognize Chen for her achievements, ASU will conduct a Carr Signing Day event at 8:20 a.m. Tuesday, April 7, at Brandeis High School. Chen, who lives in Helotes, plans to major in biology and minor in chemistry at ASU on her way to a career in health care.
Carr Scholarships are renewable for four years and range in value from $1,500 to $15,000 per year. Scholarship awards are based on high school grade point average and standardized test scores on the ACT or SAT college entrance exams. Fewer than 10 Distinguished Carr Scholarships are awarded to new incoming students per year, providing each recipient with $15,000 annually. To be selected for the top award, students must score at least 32 on the ACT or 1400 on the SAT, maintain a high school cumulative GPA of at least 3.5, and interview with ASU administrators.
Other 2015 Carr Distinguished Scholarship recipients are Quint Anderson of Caldwell High School in Caldwell, Cooper Jones of Borger High School in Borger, Jacob Meixner of Euless Trinity High School in Euless, and Clay Wegner and Sarah Champagne of Central High School in San Angelo.
Carr Scholarships are funded by a $100 million endowment, one of the largest in the nation at a regional university. Robert G. Carr and his wife, Nona K. Carr, who bequeathed their interests in oil, gas and other minerals from producing properties in West Texas, made the Carr Foundation possible.
