|Amount||One award of $2,000.|
Awarded to a freshman who graduated from high school in either Barron or Dunn counties and has financial need. Candidates must have a minimum of a 25 composite on the ACT (or comparable SAT) AND rank in the top 25% of their graduating class (or GPA of 3.5) to be eligible. If a traditional student from Barron or Dunn County is not available to receive a scholarship, consideration may be given to a transfer student from the Barron County two-year campus who has maintained a B+ grade point average and has financial need.
This scholarship is renewable up to three years for the recipient selected as a freshman provided the student maintains a B+ grade point average. Only one student a year will receive the scholarship, so if a student is renewed for the scholarship in the sophomore, junior and senior years, no new recipient will be selected during these years.

The Admissions Office will coordinate the selection process, which is highly competitive. Applications will be considered holistically and include a review of the student's high school transcript, test scores, essays, class rank, class rigor, activities/involvement, etc.
|Selection Deadline||Screening of candidates will begin in December for some early awards and continue through the spring or until awards are accepted.|
|Notification||Award notices will be sent to recipients by Admissions by the beginning of April of the student's senior year. If scholarships are declined, they will be re-awarded to alternates through the summer months.|
|Thank You||The recipient must send a thank you note to Hannah and Gaylon Greenhill in care of the UW-Eau Claire Foundation.|
