All-USA Academic Team Awarded $100,000 in Scholarships

Twenty college students have been named to the prestigious 2020 All-USA Academic Team and will each receive a $5,000 scholarship.

The All-USA program is widely recognized as the most prestigious academic honor for students seeking an associate degree or credential. Students were selected for their intellectual rigor, academic achievement, leadership, and civic growth, and for extending their educational experiences to better themselves, their schools, and their surrounding communities. More than 2,000 students were nominated by their colleges for the scholarship program.

The 2020 All-USA Academic Team is sponsored by Follett Higher Education Group, with additional support provided by the American Association of Community Colleges and Phi Theta Kappa. Each team member will also receive a special medallion, and their college presidents will receive a commemorative obelisk in recognition of their leadership.
