Eighteen Honors students are among the 35 students chosen by the Syracuse University’s Remembrance Scholar Selection Committee as the 2021-22 Remembrance Scholars. Remembrance Scholars are chosen in their junior year through a rigorous, competitive process. Applicants submitted an essay and a reflective response in multimedia, artistic, musical or written format as part of a comprehensive application, and finalists were interviewed by members of the selection committee, composed of University faculty, staff and current Remembrance Scholars.
