Big Ten Faculty Representatives established the Distinguished Scholar Award in 2008 to supplement the Academic All-Big Ten program. Distinguished Scholar Award recipients must have earned Academic All-Big Ten recognition in the previous academic year, must have been enrolled full time at the institution for the entire previous academic year (two semesters or three quarters) and earned a minimum GPA of 3.70 or better during the previous academic year, excluding any summer grades. The Academic All-Big Ten threshold isย a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher for a student’s academic career.

This yearโ€™s group of 131 Buckeye student-athletes to earn the award surpasses last yearโ€™s OSU record total of 129. This is also the fourth consecutive year in which Ohio State has led the Big Ten in total recipients.
