Merrimack senior gets Regis scholarship

TYNGSBOROUGH, Mass. –Eva Fandozzi, of Merrimack, a senior at the Academy of Notre Dame, was awarded the Regis College Presidential Catholic Scholarship, which amounts to full tuition for residential students, renewable for each year.

Seniors must be nominated for consideration by their high school, and are selected based on their academic achievement, leadership ability and dedication to community service.

“We were proud to nominate Eva for a full scholarship,” guidance counselor Stacey Marsden said. “Eva is an excellent student, an intelligent young woman and a dedicated learner. In the classroom, she engages in discussion, is highly motivated, and despite the rigorous course load she carries, she is always well prepared for each class.

“Eva is an involved member of the NDA community, a member of National Honor Society, an officer of Student Council and Model UN, participates in Campus Ministry and is a 12-season athlete.

“Eva will be an asset to any college campus, and she is well deserving of this scholarship offer.”

Fandozzi applied to Regis College at the suggestion of the coach at her running camp, and is happy that it offers a neuroscience program, since that is the area of study she is considering.

“I am honored to have been nominated and completely didn’t see it coming,” Fandozzi said. “My parents are thrilled.”

Fandozzi feels well prepared for the road ahead.

“Originally, I wanted to be a teacher, but the science focus at NDA sparked my interest in medicine and neuroscience,” she said. “The workload at NDA is heavy, but they provide great time management and stress management programs that really build your confidence.”
