BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — The Big Ten Conference announced Tuesday (June 27) that a school record 115 Indiana University student-athletes have been named recipients of the 2022-23 Big Ten Distinguished Scholar Award.

The number includes 20 Indiana student-athletes that maintained a perfect 4.0 GPA during the previous academic term. 2023 marks the third straight year in which at least 100 Hoosiers received the award.

“This is a special day as we recognize and celebrate the record 115 IU student-athletes who have been honored as Big Ten Distinguished Scholars for the 2022-23 year,” said IU Vice President and Director of Athletics Scott Dolson. “These individuals have achieved at the very highest levels academically, all while juggling the significant demands that come with being a Big Ten student-athlete. Congratulations to these students for this tremendous accomplishment. We are proud of how well they represent not only our department and their programs, but Indiana University as a whole.”

Big Ten Faculty Representatives established the Distinguished Scholar Award in 2008 to supplement the Academic All-Big Ten program. Distinguished Scholar Award recipients must have earned Academic All-Big Ten recognition in the previous academic year, must have been enrolled full time at the institution for the entire previous academic year (two semesters or three quarters) and earned a minimum GPA of 3.70 or better during the previous academic year, excluding any summer grades. The Academic All-Big Ten threshold is a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher for a student-athlete’s academic career.

The full list of Indiana’s Big Ten Distinguished Scholars for the 2022-23 academic year can be found below.
