Syracuse University Scholars
A group of eight to twelve academically outstanding graduating seniors are designated each year as Syracuse University Scholars. Each school and college selects one nominee per 100 (or fraction thereof) graduating seniors and forwards these nominations, plus supporting documents, to the Senate Committee on Academic Affairs. The Selection Committee, appointed by the Senate Committee on Academic Affairs, will select eight to twelve Syracuse University Scholars from among the candidates. It will also select one of the University Scholars to give a Commencement address. In addition to demonstrated skill in the use of the English language, criteria for selection include: outstanding performance in coursework; exceptional academic attainment such as publication of original research, literary work, critical essay, etc., or public performance or exhibition of artistic work; co-curricular activities that are indicative of scholarly and intellectual excellence; recognition or acclaim by the wider community for academic achievement.
