Students of the sophomore, junior, and senior classes in the top 5% of their respective classes will be designated John Harvard Scholars, based on the grade point average of the previous academic year. Students of the sophomore, junior, and senior classes in the top 10% of their respective classes who are not designated John Harvard Scholars will be designated Harvard College Scholars (if not already selected as a John Harvard Scholar). In years when John Harvard Scholars comprise 10% or more of classes due to ties, there are no Harvard College Scholars designated.
A student’s annual GPA will still be used to determine these awards, and to be eligible students must complete the full year, and be in good academic and disciplinary standing. Announcements will be sent out by the end of October.
