Each year, we select one outstanding student from each of the four A&S divisions (Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, and Professional Programs) and one student for Multidisciplinary Studies. The Outstanding Senior Award is the highest honor we bestow each year on a graduating senior in each of these divisions. Each winner receives a cash award of $1,500, and is recognized at both the Campus Awards Ceremony and the A&S Scholarships and Awards Ceremony.
There are three criteria for the award:
- demonstrated academic achievement (minimum gpa of 3.25),

- and must be scheduled to receive your first Bachelor’s degree in December 2017* or May 2018
