Bosworth Alumni with 100% Scholarship at University of Illinois

Bosworth Alumni with 100% Scholarship at University of Illinois

Steph Reynolds has made a tremendous start in the US College system. As a very high ACT score entrant Steph has a 100% academic scholarship on the Capital Scholars programme of the University of Illinois (at Springfield, UIS) and is in her freshman year. She is a key member of the Women’s Tennis Team (UIS Prairie Stars).
US College life is very different from that in the UK with a mandatory broad academic curriculum throughout years 1 and 2 before a greater degree of specialisation in years 3 and 4 underpinned by an impressive arrange of academic and athlete support. 
Steph’s academic programme is on the Capital Scholar’s programme, currently majoring in English. Find out more here: https://www.uis.edu/caphonors/ 
Steph is unbeaten in singles and doubles tennis matches within the NCAA Division II Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC) League this semester and is very much looking forward to next semester which sees most of the competitive sporting action for College Tennis in the US before Steph returns to the UK for a well-earned 4-month summer break in May 2019 ahead of her sophomore year starting August 2019.  Find out more here: https://uisprairiestars.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=2093
