Presidential Scholar Recipients

The 2013 - 2014 Recipients

Selection of Scholars

Names and profiles of finalists for the Presidential Scholarship award are reviewed by the specific departments for further evaluation. In addition, candidates will undergo on-campus interviews with faculty, students and current department presidential scholars (if applicable).  Upon completion of the final interview/campus visit, each department submits their candidate to the Vice President of Academic Affairs’ Office.  In an effort to provide scholars a reasonable time to decide which college they should attend, Centenary College will notify recipients of these awards by March.
