Henry Barnard Distinguised Student Award

Recognizing Academic Achievement & Community Service

12 outstanding college seniors who attend Central, Eastern, Southern and Western Connecticut State Universities are honored each academic year by the CSUS Foundation during the annual Henry Barnard Distinguished Student Awards Banquet, which has been held in the spring for more than twenty years. The event is one of the highlights of the academic calendar, recognizing the scholarship and dedication of inspiring students.

To be considered for a Barnard Award, a student must have at least a 3.7 GPA and a record of significant community service. The students are nominated by their respective universities and presidents.

The award is named for Henry Barnard, the first U.S. commissioner of education, and a distinguished Connecticut educator who was the state's first superintendent of schools and principal of what later became Central Connecticut State University.
