Big Ten Conference Announces Distinguished Scholars for 2010-11
July 14, 2011
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Following the conclusion of the 2010-11 academic year, the Big Ten Conference announced that 534 student-athletes have been selected as recipients of the Big Ten Distinguished Scholar Award. The list features student-athletes from every institution and 33 different sports who have earned a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.7 or higher for the previous academic year. Indiana had 39 student-athletes named Distinguished Scholars.
In February of 2008, Big Ten Faculty Representatives established a conference academic recognition to supplement the Academic All-Big Ten program. Similar to the Academic All-Big Ten honor, Distinguished Scholar Award recipients must be letterwinners in at least their second academic year at their institution. However, the Distinguished Scholar Award encompasses only student-athletes with a minimum GPA of 3.7 or higher for the previous academic year, excluding summer school. The Academic All-Big Ten threshold is a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher for a student-athlete's academic career.
