For instance, Iowa State University and the University of Texas at Austin both provide scholarships to male students who demonstrate leadership, service and academic achievement. Northwestern University, the University of Illinois and Ohio State University (to name a few) all offer the Balanced Man Scholarship to recognize incoming freshmen that exhibit a well-rounded approach to life.
