WOMEN WIN XCEL ENERGY SCHOLARSHIPS TO STUDY SCIENCE AT VITERBO

LA CROSSE, Wis. -- Biology major Merril Raimer-Cunitz of Norwalk, Wis. and chemistry major Angela Hebda of Rib Lake, Wis., have each been named the recipient of a $2,500 Xcel Energy for Women in Science Scholarship at Viterbo University.
 
Viterbo created the scholarships with a $5,000 grant from the Xcel Energy Foundation.  Prospective freshmen women with at least a 3.5 GPA and a score of 23 on the ACT test who intend to major in science or math were eligible for the scholarship. In 2004, The Xcel Energy Foundation committed $1,600,000 to supporting education in Xcel's service area, which includes western Wisconsin.
 
Women are underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and math disciplines at Viterbo and throughout the nation and Viterbo is committed to supporting women in science. The Xcel Energy Foundation typically funds “scholarships and intern programs focused in mathematics, science, and technical or environmental areas of study as they relate to the energy industry.”
