Students Chosen for Order of the Pegasus

Nine College of Sciences students have attained the most prestigious and significant award possible at the University of Central Florida, the Order of the Pegasus. To even be considered as a candidate, students must be nominated by individuals who broadly represent the university community (such as the president, provost, executive vice president, vice provost, vice presidents and deans, student body president and the director of athletics.) Nominees are then asked to complete a formal application, provide an essay, separate recommendations and may be chosen to attend a personal interview with the selection committee.

The Order of the Pegasus “recognizes exemplary performance by UCF bachelor’s degree students in the areas of academic achievement, outstanding university involvement, leadership, and community service. Master’s degree students, doctoral, professional, or MD students are selected separately based on academic achievement, professional or community service, leadership, and publication or research experiences.

Here is a list of this year’s College of Sciences’ Order of the Pegasus inductees
