ACS Scholars Program

ACS Scholars are undergraduate seniors who embody Carnegie Mellon's high standards of academic excellence, volunteerism, leadership and involvement in student organizations, athletics or the arts. They are selected each year by their deans and department heads to represent their class in service and leadership.

The program was launched in 1975, and has recognized nearly 1,000 students to date. Each scholar receives a monetary award - made possible by the generosity of ACS members - to support their academic and personal growth.

Scholars also work together to present a gift back to the university community. Through this opportunity, the students experience the joy of philanthropy firsthand.
