Published: Sep 12, 2011

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 13, 2011) — Among the 34 University of Kentucky freshmen who were awarded the prestigious Singletary Scholarship this year are four with perfect scores on either the SAT or ACT college entrance exams.  

 

Scoring a perfect 1600 on the SAT were Manasi Malik, of Attleboro, Mass., a graduate of Bishop Feehan High School; and Roshan Palli, of Lexington, a graduate of Paul Laurence Dunbar High School.  

 

Scoring a perfect 36 on the ACT were Bradley M. Bernhard, of Geneva, Ill., a graduate of Geneva Community High School; and Matthew Graham Wilson, of Simpsonville, a graduate of Christian Academy Of Louisville. 

 

The Singletary Scholarship is the most prestigious four-year scholarship awarded by the University of Kentucky. The scholarship, named for former UK President Otis A. Singletary, began in 1985 and covers the full cost of tuition, room and board, and a personal stipend for four years of undergraduate study. The scholarship is valued at approximately $70,000 for a Kentucky resident and $108,000 for a nonresident.

 

"We are very proud of this year's Singletary Scholars," said UK President Eli Capilouto. "This award recognizes impressive scholastic achievement, and it reflects the university's highest level of confidence in these students' abilities and academic potential. " 

 

To be eligible, students must score 31 or higher on the American College Test (ACT) or 1360 combined math and critical reading scores on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), and have a minimum high school grade point average of 3.75. The selection committee also considers extracurricular activities, work and volunteer responsibilities, leadership involvement, a written essay and a personal interview.
