2001 Renaissance Prize Winners

At the 2001 commencement, the university recognized 67 seniors as USC Renaissance Scholars. Each student completed a major and a minor, or a double major, in two disparate fields with a grade point average of 3.5 or better. Each Renaissance Scholar is also eligible to enter the Renaissance Scholar Prize competition. From among the 54 scholars who chose to compete, 19 have been nominated to receive a $10,000 prize. The 19 prize recipients form an exemplary group.
