Distinguished Scholar Awards

Distinguished Scholar awards are given to seven incoming freshmen each year. Recipients of this $10,000 award must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.75 and a minimum ACT score of 30 or minimum SAT score of 1320. As part of the selection process, each applicant is also asked to write an essay. The awards are renewable for an additional three consecutive years if the recipient maintains a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.50. This year’s group is unusual in that all are men, and all but one are majoring in engineering.
