LA MIRADA, Calif.– Yuching Cheng, a freshman at Biola University and resident of Edison, was among 132 students who received the one of the college’s highest scholarship – the Provost’s scholarship – for the 2012-2013 academic year.
Freshmen are eligible for the Provost’s scholarship – $8,000 per year – if upon entering the university, they meet the requirements of the scholarship. Approximately 15 percent of this year’s incoming class received this award.
Students are considered for this scholarship upon admission to the university based on their GPA and SAT scores. The requirements of the scholarship are a GPA between 3.2 and 3.5 along with an SAT score of 1350-1500.
Students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 to continue to receive the following year.
At a special luncheon in honor of the award recipients, provost and senior vice president David Nystrom encouraged students as they embarked on their academic careers.
“Take advantage of the riches here [Biola], the opportunity for you is unimaginably expansive. Take hold of it and live into the unimaginable,” said Nystrom.
Biola University offers more than 145 academic programs in six schools. A private Christian university located in Southern California on the border of Los Angeles and Orange counties in the city of La Mirada, Biola has remained committed to its biblical foundation for more than 100 years.
