Sezzle is thrilled to announce the incoming freshman who has been selected as the first Scholar in their Program. Jonathan Olaleye, a first-year University of Minnesota Honors Program student in the College of Science and Engineering and graduate of Champlin Park High School, was chosen as the inaugural Sezzle Scholar. During his high school years, Jonathan completed many Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate classes, was named a National Merit Commended Scholar, and graduated with Highest Honors. He was involved in student council service projects and the school’s Link Crew, which helps new students acclimate to the school. He’s also a budding entrepreneur who has designed websites, computer apps, and his own gaming system. Olaleye plans to major in computer science or computer engineering.
Sezzle is a strong pursuer towards the solution to provide academic support and financial aid to underrepresented groups. Because Sezzle can’t provide scholarships to every deserving bright mind out there, the company wants to share the following list of scholarship resources. Sezzle wishes all students the best no matter what path they take, and believes that this young generation of minds will change the world.
