William J. Branstrom Freshman Prize

Freshmen students in the top 5% of their school/college class are eligible for this honor if they have earned at least 14 graded credits at Michigan. Advanced placement credit does not disqualify a student for consideration of this award. Students who have previously earned credit at another institution of higher education are ineligible. A book with an inscribed nameplate is presented to each student; a notation is made on the student's transcript by the Office of the Registrar, and recipients of this award are invited to attend the annual Honors Convocation.
