USA Today looks for outstanding scholars

by Loren Moreno, editor

 
USA Today is conducting its 2005 search for an All-USA College Academic Team—made up of 20 of the “best and the brightest” undergraduate college students from across the country.
 

Faculty from four-year institutions have been invited to nominate students who excel in academics and leadership on their campus. Each of the 60 chosen will be given a $2,500 cash award plus a featured spot in a two-page color spread in USA Today.

Miram Fouad, director of Scholarships and Honors, said she would like to see a student from HPU nominated and even win. “We have such a broad student body, there should be no reason our students aren’t among the best,” Fouad said.

Fouad did point out, however, that it would take broad support from HPU’s faculty to identify nominees from the University. “For me, looking for nominees for awards like this is like finding a needle in a hay stack. Deans and faculty know our students better than I do and should be encouraged to nominate,” Fouad said.

Students will be judged based on academics as well as community leadership and involvement on and off campus. In addition to a faculty nomination, students must write a personal statement describing an outstanding intellectual or academic endeavor. Nominees must also submit two letters of recommendation.

Nominations must be sent to USA Today and postmarked by Nov. 30. Copies of the nomination forms can be accessed at allstars.usatoday.com. Questions can be e-mailed to allstars@usatoday.com.
