Dean of Academic Life
Prestigious Awards Initiative
This program is coordinated by the Dean of Academic Life. Please note that all awards require a statement that demonstrates intellectual and personal maturity in clear, thoughtful prose. G.P.A. requirements vary, although a 3.6 or 3.7 is the most common minimum. Students must work with a campus award advisor well in advance of the deadline (sometimes a year or more). In most cases, the College must endorse final applications to these foundations.
