LA CROSSE, Wis. – Megan Loftsgaarden of Altoona and Katie Corcoran of Altura, Minn., have each been named the recipient of a $2,500 Xcel Energy Women in Science Scholarship at Viterbo University.

Loftsgaarden, a graduate of Regis High School, will major in biology. Corcoran, a graduate of Lewiston-Altura High School, will major in chemistry. Prospective freshmen women living within the Xcel Energy service area with at least a 3.5 GPA and a score of 23 or higher on the ACT test who intend to major in science or math were eligible to apply for the scholarship.

Women are underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and math across the nation, and Viterbo is committed to supporting women in science. This is the fourth year the scholarship has been offered, which is made possible by a grant from the Xcel Energy Foundation. The foundation supports math, science, and economic education programs for students in both urban and rural communities throughout the Xcel Energy service territory.
