ROSEMONT, IL – The Big Ten Conference announced that 55 Maryland student-athletes competing in intercollegiate athletics were named Big Ten Distinguished Scholar Award recipients for 2023-24.

The list includes student-athletes from 15 different teams who have recorded a minimum grade-point average (GPA) of 3.7 or higher for the previous academic year.

Big Ten Faculty Representatives established the Distinguished Scholar Award in 2008 to supplement the Academic All-Big Ten program. Similar to the Academic All-Big Ten honor, Distinguished Scholar Award recipients must be letterwinners in at least their second academic year at their institution. However, the Distinguished Scholar Award encompasses only students with a minimum GPA of 3.7 or higher for the previous academic year, excluding summer school. The Academic All-Big Ten threshold is a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher for a student’s academic career.
