Spilde attends ‘Second Century Scholars Day’ at University of Dubuque

Stoughton High School senior Claire Spilde, daughter of Dan and Lisa Spilde, was one of around 70 high-achieving high school seniors who attended the University of Dubuque's second annual Second Century Scholars Day on Friday, Feb. 17.

The Second Century Scholars program awards four renewable full tuition scholarships and several one-time Distinguished Scholar awards to incoming first-year students who show a wide-ranging curiosity about their world, a strong capacity for self-discipline, and a passion for academic excellence in service to their communities.

To be eligible for the scholarships, students were required to participate in the Second Century Scholars Day. They completed a series of interviews and a writing exercise, learned about UD's Scholar-Leader Honors Program through an informational session, met with UD faculty and students, and attended a dinner where they were recognized for their academic accomplishments.
