EC Scholar recipients have completed a rigorous three-tier selection process that includes: meeting the Honors College admissions criteria, having an additional faculty review and completing an on-campus interview. The incoming Class of 2017 EC Scholars has an average combined math/verbal SAT score of 1,344 and an average unweighted GPA of 3.92. While at ECU, the scholars must maintain a 3.5 cumulative GPA, complete research and leadership internships, participate in a study abroad experience and conduct a senior honors project.

Chapman intends to major in nutrition and sports pathology at ECU and has an interest in attending medical school one day.
