“SUNY students who earn this award have excelled in our classrooms as well as our athletic programs,” said Chancellor Zimpher. “With an average GPA of 3.6 and a number of championship competitions among them, this year’s scholar athlete awardees are a highly commendable group.”In order to be considered for this award, student-athletes were nominated by their campus athletic director. Nominees’ academic credentials and athletic accomplishments were then reviewed by a panel of athletic directors from across the State University system and members of the provost’s office.

A complete list of this year’s winners is available online.

Congratulations to these exemplary student athletes!
