Top academic standouts from Texas Tech's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources were recognized as Dean's Scholars in May. The awards, funded by various donations to the college, are based on academic excellence as well as leadership, character and citizenship.
The scholarships were established by the college to reward academic excellence and to support studious young men and women who choose to major in agricultural and natural sciences, said Cindy Akers, CASNR's Associate Dean for Academic and Student Programs. The awards are based on entrance examination scores and standing in high school graduating class, as well as leadership, sound character and good citizenship.
The Silver Award scholarship is $9,600 and requires a minimum SAT score of 1,340 or ACT score of 30, and must be in the top 25 percent of graduating class. The list of May 2021 Silver Award winners includes:
