The University of Rochester is pleased to sponsor four prestigious award programs which recognize high school juniors’ outstanding achievements in leadership and academics.
Each year, participating high schools may nominate up to four qualified students, one for each of these awards. All nominees will have their application fee waived and will be eligible for merit scholarships worth at least $7,500 per year.
Participation in these programs is open to all secondary schools. The priority deadline for nominations is March 15, 2013. If your nomination is received by this deadline, you’ll receive a certificate in April which you can present at your school’s awards ceremony. The final deadline for nominations to be submitted is June 15, 2013. All award packets will be mailed directly to the award nominator at their high school.

The deadline to submit nominations for the 2012-2013 school year was June 15, 2013. Thanks again to all school officials who participated in the High School Awards Program this past year.
We will begin accepting nominations for juniors in the 2013-2014 school year in January of 2014. Please contact Patrick O'Neill at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Please note, the relative weighting of award criteria is left to the discretion of the faculty at the individual high school, but all criteria should be taken into consideration.
