Previous Scholar Recognition is an elite honor that affirms the prestigious status of Carson Scholars in their pursuit of academic and career goals. Scholars meeting the application requirements will be honored with a special recognition package consisting of notification of their scholar status renewal, a commemorative pin to attach to the ribbon of their original medal, and a certificate of achievement. Schools will be sent notification of the scholar’s renewed status and will continue to receive a trophy (or nameplate) to recognize the scholars who have been honored with a recognition package each year. We will also make every effort to invite previous scholars to an awards banquet. There is no monetary award connected with Previous Scholar Recognition.
