Announcing the Spring 2014 Academic All-Star Program


The USA Cycling Academic All-Star Program honors collegiate athletes that excel not only in their sport, but also in the classroom. This group is named twice a year — in January for track, mountain and cyclo-cross athletes and in June for BMX and road. To achieve Academic All-Star status the athlete must have attended a USA Cycling Collegiate National Championship in the specified term and have maintained a 3.5 or higher GPA for the semester or term during which the national championship occurred (or preceded it in the case of cyclo-cross).

We strongly urge all eligible athletes to apply for our inaugural class of Academic All-Stars, which will be honor road and BMX athletes this June. In addition to this we would encourage any interested athlete to apply for the Stenner and Kuck scholarships this coming fall, which honor academic, athletic and extracurricular achievements.
