About The University of Rochester High School Awards
The University of Rochester plans to continue honoring High School Award nominations submitted prior to the final June 15th deadline. However, with the temporary closings of high schools throughout the country, we are going to postpone sending out the physical awards until schools have re-opened and the awards can be safely received by a faculty or staff member.
How it works
Each year, participating high schools may nominate up to four qualified juniors, one student for each award. Participation is open to all secondary schools.
Benefit to the students
All nominees will have their application fee waived and will be eligible to be considered for merit scholarships worth at least $10,000 per year.
Thank you for your support of the University of Rochester High School Awards Program. The 2019-2020 nomination season will open mid- to late-January, 2020. We look forward to receiving the nomination of your juniors at that time.
All award packets are mailed directly to the award nominator at the high school. Packets will not be mailed to the nominated students. If you’re nominating from outside of the United States, the process is the same, but the mailed award packets will contain letters and certificates only (no award items).
If you have any questions, please contact the High School Awards Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or (585) 275-3221. Include your school name and CEEB code in any correspondence or message. Thank you for your support of the University of Rochester High School Awards Program.
