NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Seven Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts students were recognized by the Massachusetts State University System in a State House ceremony on Monday for their academic talents and dedication by being named Tsongas Scholars. Tsonga Scholarships cover full tuition and fees at any of the nine campuses of the State University System.

MCLA students who are among this year’s Tsongas scholars include Samantha K. Barbarotta ’14 of Pittsfield, Bridget M. Blaisdell ’14 of Wilmington, Jake Bonenfant ’14 of Taunton, Elizabeth Davis ’14 of Boxford, Paul J. LaPointe ’14 of North Brookfield and Jon Oleson ’14 of Florida.

Scholarship awards are merit-based, and financial need is not required for eligibility. Tsongas Scholarships are granted to students who graduated high school with GPAs of at least 3.75 or academic ranking in the top 10 percent of their classes. Students can receive Tsongas Scholarship funding for all four years, although to renew funding students must maintain a 3.3 GPA and meet any other requirements set by individual institutions.
