Presidential Scholars

Congratulations on your Presidential Scholar award! 
We are excited to welcome you into the ACU Presidential Scholar "family". We have high expectations about the way you will influence the student body at ACU, as well as how you will take what you learn and influence the world. 
ACU's Presidential Scholar expectations are designed to inspire and prepare you for this kind of influence. We want to involve you in intentional communities built around leadership and service as soon as you begin in your first year, and provide you with numerous ways in which to grow and develop throughout your university experience as you enjoy the benefits of your Presidential Scholar award and give back to the university from a thankful heart. 
The requirements for students who receive Presidential Scholar awards reflect our intentionality, as well as our desire to build on the leadership, service and experience that you bring with you.
