Florida State University student-athletes have achieved great success in obtaining recognition for academic excellence. More than $235,000 in Postgraduate Monies has been granted to FSU students over the past seven years, as well as a number of other academic honors and awards.
Florida State University named 160 student-athletes to the 2003 Atlantic Coast Conference Honor Roll. In the 2002-2003 academic year alone, Florida State boasted three ACC Weaver James Corrigan Postgraduate Scholarship winners and several Academic All-Americans.
The Academic Support Program is committed to recognizing the academic success of all student-athletes. The Athletic Department in conjunction with Seminole Boosters, Inc., puts on the annual “Golden Torch Gala,” a black-tie academic awards banquet, each fall. The ACC Honor Roll student-athletes, as well as the individuals with the highest GPA on their respective teams, and the men’s and women’s teams with the highest GPA are recognized at this event.
Team meetings are held each year, during which time student-athletes are notified of potential honors and awards and are encouraged to apply. Combining a strong grade point average with athletic accomplishments, community service activities, and leadership experiences make for a student-athlete capable of obtaining unlimited academic honors, awards, and postgraduate opportunities.
