Who's Who Among Students in American Colleges & Universities

Each year, a select group of students is called forward to accept one of the most prestigious awards the academic
community can bestow — selection to Who’s Who Among Students. This exclusive honor is conferred by more than 1,000
schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia and is symbolized by the presentation of an award certificate.

Through our years of serving higher education, Who’s Who Among Students has become one of the most highly regarded and long-standing honors programs in the nation, having earned the overwhelming respect of college faculties and administrations. And for the students – the outstanding campus leaders of the year – national recognition by the Who’s Who program marks a pinnacle of scholastic achievement.

Who’s Who Among Students honors students from universities and colleges as well as junior colleges. Each year, Minot State University selects 10-20 students to be recognized as a Who’s Who Among Students award winner. More information can be found at
