Madison Crowell Earns Over $14 Million in Scholarships and Acceptance to 231 Colleges

Liberty County High School senior Madison Crowell has captured national attention by earning over $14 million in college scholarships and being accepted into 231 schools.

The 18-year-old standout student has chosen to pursue her dream of becoming a physical therapist at High Point University (HPU) in High Point, North Carolina. HPU, which awarded Crowell a full tuition scholarship, reported that she amassed a staggering $14,790,695 in academic merit scholarships.

“I wanted to apply to as many schools as I did because I’m coming from a low-income area of Georgia, and I want to show the kids here in Liberty County that it’s possible to get accepted into more than just local schools,” Crowell shared with Good Morning America.

During a May 1 ceremony, Crowell announced her college decision. “Choosing to attend High Point for the next four years is one of the best decisions of my life,” she said.

Dr. Nido Qubein, President of HPU, praised Crowell’s achievements. “The sky is not the limit for her, and when she comes to High Point University, we know she’ll be a leader. We know she’ll make amazing things happen. We’re here to resource her, cheer her on, and celebrate her victory.”

At HPU, Crowell plans to major in exercise science and pursue a doctorate in physical therapy. She will also join the Bonner Leaders program, which connects students with local nonprofits and social innovation projects.

President Joe Biden congratulated Madison Crowell, saying she is one of the reasons he remains “optimistic about the future.” Ahead of her college journey, Crowell has been highly involved at Liberty County High.

She served as the Class of 2024 vice president, a varsity cheerleader, a student ambassador, a basketball team manager, a National Honors Society member, and a yearbook managing editor.

Madison Crowell advises fellow high school students to prioritize self-care, stay organized, and maintain a positive outlook during the college application process.

Good Morning America noted that Madison Crowell and her mother used a shared digital spreadsheet to track applications, contacts, and scholarships, creating an easy-to-reference resource.
