Nominations are now open for student Rising Scholars. Begun in 2011, Rising Scholars are recognized at Convocation for both academic achievement and promise. This year’s Convocation takes place September 20st.
Faculty are strongly encouraged to nominate up to three students as Rising Scholars. This year, staff are also invited to nominate students for the academic honor.
Rising Scholars nominated and selected previously automatically continue as Rising Scholars this year, provided they are currently enrolled and in good standing. These Rising Scholars will be invited to Convocation, seated in a special section, and recognized during the program.
New Rising Scholars will also be recognized during the Convocation program, with the added distinction of joining faculty in the Processional.
More information on the Rising Scholar program and how to nominate a student is linked below. Also linked is a list of previous Rising Scholars. Please review this list before making your nominations, since these students do not need to be nominated again.
