Rising Star Scholars


The Rising Stars Scholarship is offered to McLennan county high school students who rank in the top 11-20% (or students ranking 6th through 10th) of their class at the end of their junior year in high school. If the class has fewer than 21 students, the 3rd and 4th ranked students in the class are eligible. For students ranking in the top 10%, please see our McLennan Scholarship program.

Recipients of the Rising Star Scholarship will be notified by the College and their high school principal at the end of their junior year.
