Along with 19 other Columbia College students from 16 Nationwide Campuses, they were awarded a $750 scholarship from the college in honor of Frank S. Westling. Westling was a highly decorated infantry officer and former dean of the college’s Extended Studies Division, now Adult Higher Education. To qualify for the Westling award, the recipients had to:

  • Be a Moberly campus student attending classes in-seat, evening or online and pursuing a degree with Columbia College
  • Have attended Columbia College during the 2013-14 academic year (scholarship will be for the 2014-15 academic year)
  • Have a minimum GPA of 3.0
  • Have at least 15 credit hours with Columbia College
  • Provide evidence of leadership and service to their community, school or country
  • Write a 400-500-word essay about their achievements and career goals

The scholarship is non-renewable and awarded to new students each year. Our hearty congratulations to these academic achievers as they finish up their degree programs.
