Nominations are now open for student Rising Scholars
Begun in 2011, Rising Scholars are recognized at Convocation for both academic achievement and promise. UMA’s 2023 Convocation takes Friday, September 22, from 3pm – 5pm on the Augusta Campus Green.
Faculty are strongly encouraged to nominate up to two students as Rising Scholars. 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 and recognized during the program.
New Rising Scholars will also be recognized during the Convocation program.
