The University Libraries are pleased to announce the Wright State University 2020 Top Scholars. Top Scholars is an annual award given to a graduating student from each college and the Lake Campus. Top Scholars are selected by the dean. Each Top Scholar must have at least a 3.6 GPA and be on track to graduate in spring. Any other criteria used to select a Top Scholar are determined by the deans and may vary by college.
Each recipient receives a certificate and a book is purchased and added to the University Libraries permanent collections in honor of each Top Scholar. Book plates, with the student’s name, college, and award year, are affixed to the book and are also added to the libraries catalog record. The subjects of the books are chosen from within the students’ majors and the books are selected by the libraries’ collection management team. The WSU Parent’s Association and the Friends of the Libraries fund the award, now in its 26th year.
We would like to publicly recognize and congratulate our seven Top Scholars for 2020. *

Congratulations to our 2020 Top Scholars!
The University Libraries, Friends of the Libraries, and the Wright State Parents Association would like to thank everyone who, with hard work, collaboration and cooperation, made this year’s Top Scholar awards possible. The Top Scholars ceremony, held in April of each year, had to be canceled this year due to the coronavirus.
