2005 Renaissance Prize Winners

At the 2005 commencement, the university has recognized 130 seniors as USC Renaissance Scholars. Each student has 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. Of the 70 graduating scholars who chose to compete, nine have been nominated to receive a $10,000 prize. The nine prize recipients form an exemplary group.
