52 Students Selected as Finalists for Forty Acres Scholars Program

Fifty-two outstanding high school students have been selected as finalists for the fourth-ever class of Forty Acres Scholars. The finalists will be brought to Austin this week to learn about the campus and to interview for the Forty Acres Scholars Program, the premier full-ride, merit-based scholarship at the University of Texas at Austin.

Among the group are National Merit Finalists, editors of their school newspapers and literary magazines, class presidents, drum majors, varsity athletes, a debate champion, and even a competitive country and western stunt dancer. Others are entrepreneurs, having started both for-profit and nonprofit businesses. And we have a composer, a songwriter, and a costume designer. We are thrilled to welcome them all to the Forty Acres.

Here’s an infographic overview of the students selected for the final round this week.
