Concordia College junior Courtney Wiese is one of five students awarded a 2019-21 Phillips Scholarship through the Minnesota Private College Council (MPCC). The students receive a total of $12,000 in scholarships, a stipend of $4,000 for the summer of 2020, and $500 to support their summer project. 

Wiese is the daughter of Darren and Pamela Wiese, Henning, Minn.

Wiese’s project is “Broadening Their Horizons: Helping Low-Income Students Access Scholarships for College.” Wiese plans to create a three-part program to work with low-income students in Henning. She’ll educate, encourage, and equip students to seek out and enact service engagement which will support their resumes and scholarship applications that she will help them develop. 

The Phillips Scholars Program provides funding for community service projects perpetuating the legacy of service to others reflected in the lives of Jay and Rose Phillips. Since the Phillips Scholars Program began in 1994, more than 50 students have received the award funded by the Jay & Rose Phillips Family Foundation of Minnesota.

Concordia College is a four-year liberal arts college of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America offering 50 majors, including 15 honors majors, and 12 preprofessional programs.
