MORGANTOWN, W.Va.—

The Benjamin M. Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources at West Virginia University has selected 26 incoming students to receive the inaugural Incoming Statler Engagement and Leadership (ISEAL) Scholarship.

This one-time, $1,000 scholarship was made possible by various donors to the Statler College. Recipients were selected based off of outstanding engagement and leadership activities throughout their high school career. 

Students who have excelled beyond the classroom, in activities such as serving on student councils, as class presidents and in student organizations, were chosen for the scholarship. Many were involved in various extracurricular activities such as sports, marching band, theater, and several worked part time jobs while in high school. 

“We are excited to be able to recognize students for their high school engagement and leadership,” said Cate Schlobohm, outreach program coordinator for the Statler College. “We know we have many academically impressive incoming students, but when you read about what they do outside of the classroom and for their communities, it is really amazing! These ISEAL recipients will be our upcoming Statler stand outs!”
