    The criteria for eligible students include:

    • GPA of 3.5 or higher.

At the same time, colleges and organizations using College Board’s Student Search Service can connect directly with awardees during the recruitment process.

    “It’s becoming increasingly hard for students to be ‘seen’ during the college recruitment process. We’re exceptionally proud of the National Recognition Programs for celebrating students who are at times overlooked but have shown their outstanding academic abilities’” said Tarfin Ray, senior vice president of BigFuture at

College Board. “This is a benefit not only for students but also for colleges and universities committed to recruiting diverse and talented students.”
