University Scholars

A group of 8 to 12 academically outstanding graduating seniors are designated each year as Syracuse University Scholars. Students are selected by a University wide faculty committee from candidates nominated by the schools and colleges in the following process. Each school and college nominates academically outstanding students according to criteria developed within that college or school. Each school or college may nominate a minimum of two and as many as one student per every 100 students in this graduating class. Nominees submit a portfolio of appropriate supporting documents. Information on the selection process, including nominating forms, guidelines for student portfolios, and criteria for evaluation of co-curricular activities, is available in the college deans’ office.
