TIFFIN — Emma Saltsman, a 2016 graduate of Northmont High School, is the recipient of a major scholarship to attend Heidelberg University.
Saltsman, the daughter of Richard Saltsman and Peggy Saltsman of Englewood, has received the Fellows Award of $15,500 a year for four years. The award was announced following Heidelberg’s annual scholarship competition earlier this academic year.
Students who rank near the top of their high school class are invited to participate in the university’s annual scholarship competition. The program recognizes students based on high school grade-point average and ACT or SAT test scores. In addition to weighing a student’s academic credentials, the competition also looks at leadership skills and community service through a personal interview, a portfolio and an essay.
Founded in 1850, Heidelberg offers 30 majors, 30 minors and 10 pre-professional programs, awarding the bachelor of arts, bachelor of science, bachelor of music degrees, as well as master’s degrees in education, counseling, business administration and music. Affiliated with the United Church of Christ, Heidelberg has been ranked for 28 consecutive years as one of the top colleges in the Midwest by U.S. News and World Report.
