Congratulations to RIT’s
Outstanding Undergraduate Scholars
RIT’s 2015-2016 Outstanding Undergraduate Scholars Awards will be held Thursday, April 7, 2016. The ceremony will honor 117 students, an increase from 104 last year, for their exceptional academic achievements. Only one percent of RIT students receive this recognition in any given year. Minimum requirements for the award are completion of at least 83 credit hours of study and a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.85 for all work completed at the university as of the previous spring term. Community service, employment and research activities are also considered.
“The Outstanding Undergraduate Scholars Awards reaffirm the importance of academic excellence and student achievement at RIT,” says provost and senior vice president of Academic Affairs, Jeremy Haefner. “The ceremony pays tribute to these undergraduates whose demonstrated devotion to excellence is an inspiration to the university community.”
