    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Big Ten Conference announced on Wednesday that 587 student-athletes have been selected recipients of the Big Ten Distinguished Scholar Award. The list includes student-athletes from every institution and 36 different sports who have earned a minimum grade-point average (GPA) of 3.7 or higher for the previous academic year. Indiana had 48 student-athletes earn the award for 2011-12.

    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.

    The 2011-12 class of Distinguished Scholar Award recipients includes 85 student-athletes who maintained a perfect 4.0 GPA during the previous academic term, including seven from Indiana.
