Nominate a 2024 Emerging Scholar

Published: November 29, 2023

The Emerging Scholars Committee is excited for the opportunity to select another group of Emerging Scholars! Faculty are encouraged to nominate students based on perseverance, innovative thinking, and professionalism both in and outside the classroom.

Students selected as 2024 Emerging Scholars will each receive a $1,000 scholarship to be applied toward their tuition for the 2023-2024 academic year. Eligible students must plan to enroll in six or more credits for the 2024-2025 academic year in both fall and spring semesters and have a minimum GPA of 2.0.

Faculty are also able to nominate students from Summer 2023, Fall 2023, and Spring 2024 semesters. Faculty may nominate up to five students per academic year. Dual Credit students cannot be nominated.

Nominations are then reviewed, and finalists are selected by the Emerging Scholars Committee. Up to four students will be awarded in each of the schools of instruction.

Nominations are due by Monday, April 1. Please consider nominating one of your students this semester!
