Lynch announces scholarship for 20 Under 40 honorees

January 23, 2014

Stephens President Dianne Lynch yesterday announced that members of the Columbia Business Times 20 Under 40 class this year are eligible for a $2,040 scholarship if they want to pursue an advanced degree at Stephens.

Lynch was the keynote speaker at the 20 Under 40 celebration in the Kimball Ballroom at Lela Raney Wood Hall. She praised the group for their varied accomplishments.

“Success is knowing what you want and going after it,” she said. “Leadership is a choice. It’s a choice to care that much and to work that much.”

This year’s class includes lawmakers, attorneys, business owners and others who have achieved success before the age of 40. A complete list of honorees can be found here.

For most of the recipients, the $2,040 scholarship can be combined with the Community Connections Grant worth $1,600 or more in tuition. The Community Connections Grant is available to those who live or work in Boone or Cole counties.
