Walentas Scholars Program continues to expand as it enters its second year
Last spring, the Walentas Scholars Program conducted its first competition, drawing in a total of 257 nominations from 13 regions across Virginia and New York. In May 2022, the Foundation announced that 12 high school students were selected to join the inaugural class of Walentas Scholars.
Recently, the Foundation concluded its second Walentas Scholarship competition. Out of the 318 nominations submitted from high schools across Maryland, Missouri, New York, and Virginia, 50 scholarship finalists emerged. Next fall, 17 students will matriculate at the University to form the second class of Walentas Scholars.
