2021 Wright State University Top Scholars

The University Libraries are pleased to announce the Wright State University 2021 Top Scholars. Top Scholars is an annual award given to a graduating senior from each college and the Lake Campus. Top Scholars are selected by the dean and must have at least a 3.6 GPA, be on track to graduate in spring, and represent the mission, vision and values of our inclusive University.

Each recipient receives a certificate and a book is purchased and added to the University Libraries permanent collections in honor of each Top Scholar. Bookplates 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 student’s majors and the books are selected by the libraries’ collection management team. The Wright State University Libraries and the Friends of the Libraries fund the award, now in its 27th year.

We would like to publicly recognize and congratulate our seven Top Scholars for 2021.
