Corey Ott

Campus Compact announced that Stevenson junior Cory Ott is one of two students nationwide to earn a full scholarship to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute’s Leadership and the American Presidency (LATP) program for Fall 2017.

“I feel incredibly honored to be rewarded this scholarship and opportunity. I am looking forward to meeting other peer leaders from around the country and learning from elected officials in D.C.”

Ott was recently named a Campus Compact 2017 Newman Civic Fellow for his demonstrated commitment in finding solutions for challenges facing communities throughout the country. Each year, Campus Compact collaborates with the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute to provide scholarships to Newman Civic Fellows for the institute’s LATP program, aimed at developing the next generation of citizen leaders.

“I feel incredibly honored to be rewarded this scholarship and opportunity,” said Ott, a native of Bordentown, NJ. “I am looking forward to meeting other peer leaders from around the country and learning from elected officials in Washington, D.C. Everyone is going to be coming from very different backgrounds, so I am interested in listening to everyone’s story.”

Ott is extensively involved on campus, holding many leadership positions. As Director of Philanthropy for the University’s Student Government Association, Ott works tirelessly to combat the issues of hunger, illness, and pollution in the Baltimore area. Ott is a member of Relay for Life and the University’s Mission: I’m Home organization that works to rebuild and repair homes damaged or destroyed by natural disasters.

Ott will spend the Fall 2017 semester in the nation’s capital. During his time in Washington, D.C., Ott will hear from real leaders in the fields of business, government, and the nonprofit sectors. He will learn lessons on leadership, while simultaneously applying all of these skills in the real world and in authentic course assignments.

Making a Meaningful Difference

For a third year, the annual Stevenson Scholarship Luncheon was an occasion for celebration as scholarship donors and their deserving recipients were able to meet and get to know each other, some renewing their acquaintance from the past year or two.

Samuel M. Dell III, Trustee and sponsor of the Geraldine and Sam Dell Endowed Scholarships for Character and Excellence in Business and the Sciences, served as emcee and provided insight into his own experience. “It has been an inspiration for me and my family to meet these scholars and to see how we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of truly exceptional young people as they develop into positive contributors to the broader community,” said Dell.

Fenton Scholar Caroline Camper ’19 addressed the donors present and echoed the feelings of her fellow students when she remarked, “You all are creating a future for us that is bright and hopeful and allows us to pursue our education without the overwhelming worry of not being able to pay for it. Thank you for allowing me and many others to reach our full potential and achieve our dreams.”

At the April 23 event, milestone anniversaries also were recognized, with 10 consecutive years of awards from the Jo-Ellen Turner, Ph.D. Endowed Scholarship in English and the Linda Connolly Fenton Endowed Scholarship in Nursing and 15 consecutive years from the France-Merrick Foundation Scholarship and the Carolyn Manuszak Scholarship in Memory of Dr. T. J. Manuszak.

Difference of Five Years

As this institution grows, so does the number of students pursuing a Stevenson University education and, accordingly, their need for tuition support. We are grateful that so many alumni, friends, corporations, foundations, and organizations have generously helped us to keep pace with this critical need.

In the past five years alone, our scholarship program has grown dramatically. See the infographic below for more details.
