Resident Admissions at Liberty University has announced its second Priority Program winner of a one-year, full-tuition scholarship for the 2010-11 academic year.

Robert Nitschke of National Park, N.J., was presented a check for $16,792 on March 10. Nitschke is a senior at Gateway Regional High School in Deptford, N.J. He plans on studying Business Management at Liberty this fall.

Hosted by the Admissions Office, the Priority Program is a way for students who exercise due diligence in the admissions process to secure a place in the fall 2010 incoming class. Students who meet certain criteria and deadlines are eligible for the scholarship drawings. Nitschke completed the second step in Liberty’s admissions process by the March 1 deadline, making him eligible for the second round of drawings.

The admission process at Liberty includes the necessary steps for enrollment – the Four A’s of Admissions: Apply, Accept, ASIST, Attend. The remaining Priority Program deadlines (ASIST and Attend) are April 1 and May 1.

The first winner was Ryan Hartman, an 18-year-old from Delaware, Ohio.
