ACS Scholars Program

Andrew Carnegie Society Scholars are selected each year by their deans and department heads to represent their class in service and leadership.

These undergraduate seniors embody Carnegie Mellon's high standards of academic excellence, volunteerism, leadership, involvement in student organizations, athletics or the arts. Since its inception in 1975, the program has recognized nearly 1,000 students.

Each ACS Scholar receives a monetary award - made possible by the generosity of ACS members - that supports their academic and personal growth.

Additionally, they work together as a committee to present a gift back to the university community. Through this opportunity, the students experience the joy of philanthropy firsthand.
