Top scholarship candidates visit campus March 20

Dallas Hall groupOn March 20, more than 100 of the nation’s best high school students will visit SMU for an annual event that will show them what the University has to offer and help determine its next class of top scholars.

Merit Scholars Day 2009 is an opportunity for these top students to learn more about SMU and its two leading merit-based programs – the President’s Scholarship program, directed by Associate Provost Tom Tunks, and the Hunt Leadership Scholarship program, directed by Associate Provost Ellen Pryor.

But it’s also an opportunity for the University to make its case to some of its most highly qualified applicants, Tunks says.
