2020 Richter Scholars selected

Forty-eight first-year students have been chosen by the Richter Scholar Committee to participate in the College’s signature summer research program for rising sophomores.

The students chosen represent 15 countries, 11 states, and many communities throughout Illinois. Together, they earned a 3.8 grade point average in their first semester at the College.

“They are truly an outstanding group of young women and men,” said Richter Scholars Committee Chair Jim Marquardt.

In all, more than 80 first-year students applied for this unique summer program.

The students chosen will interview for four- and 10-week research internships with more than 30 Lake Forest College faculty members in coming days. The pairings of students with faculty mentors will be announced in mid-March.
