NEVADA, MO.--- Cottey College in Nevada is offering a new scholarship for second and third year students. "Opportunity Scholarships" will be granted to students planning to continue towards a bachelor's degree in six majors. Those are business, English, environmental studies, international relations and business, liberal arts, and psychology. The college's director of admissions tells us the scholarship is unique because faculty nominate the students to receive the funds. 

"So they are looking at the students they are with every week for several hours a week and deciding who of those top students do we really want back at Cottey because they are our top students," said Judi Steege, Director of Cottey Admissions. 

The "Opportunity Scholarship" is $3,000 and renewable each semester. 25 students were selected to receive the scholarship for the next school year.
