Distinguished Scholars 2025

So it is about that time of year these invites go out. So I am starting this thread for those that were fortunate enough to get invited.

Thanks for starting this. Looking forward to seeing some responses here. Good luck everyone!

Does anyone know when the invites will go out for distinguished scholars? It’s a long shot for my son but we are remaining hopeful.:grin:

Last year people started receiving them on Feb 4 according to the thread on here. We are patiently waiting too, also a longshot but hoping! :crossed_fingers:t2::crossed_fingers:t2::crossed_fingers:t2:

Financial portal is down. Wonder if that’s a sign that invites are coming soon.

My daughter just received an email saying that she was a finalist for distinguished scholar award

Did they rly only choose around 100 people? I got an invite and find it hard to believe that I was selected out of 31,000 people lol

Folks I don’t know if it is the same this year but in 2018 there was a round of invites sent out for Discho and my daughter didn’t get one. Thought oh well total long shot. Then about a week or two later out of the blue she got an invite.

Congrats you all. No invite for DS yet. If anyone is so inclined to post stats, I’d be curious.

I know that only a select group of the finalists will get a full ride. But do all finalists get additional award money beyond what was already offered?

DS hasn’t received an invite either… was hoping. 36 ACT UW GPA 3.9. WGPA4.5. ChemE OOS

Best wishes to those who received invites!
