CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Twenty Provost Scholars, each receiving a one-year tuition and fee scholarship, renewable for four years, have been named as part of the Presidential Scholars program at the University of Northern Iowa. The scholars will begin their studies this fall.

__(Name)__ of __(Hometown)__, is among the students receiving Provost awards.

The awardees receive stipends that cover UNI tuition and mandatory health, student activities and computer fees. They are valued at $4,916 for Iowa residents and $11,874 for out-of-state students for the 2003-2004 academic year. The scholarships will be adjusted to cover any rise in tuition and fees.

To be eligible for the awards, students have to score at least a 29 on the American College Testing (ACT) exam and be in the top 10 percent of their high school classes. Students in classes with fewer than 50 students must be one of the top five in their classes.
