Founders' Day Awards are mailed to undergraduate honor scholars in April.
Eligibility for the Founders' Day Award is determined by the Office of the University Registrar and awarded to baccalaureate September and January degree recipients and May degree candidates who have maintained a grade point average of 3.5 or higher based on a minimum of 30 credits in courses taken at NYU. For May degree candidates eligibility is based on the cumulative GPA through the fall semester "at the time of review". The Founders' Day Award and Latin Honors are separate and distinct honors with different criteria. Eligibility for one does not necessarily constitute eligibility for the other.
