The Minerva Awards at USAO provide public recognition for outstanding students at USAO, honoring excellence in academics, community service, campus involvement and others areas. They are awarded to students who go above and beyond the ordinary expectations of USAO students, and as we raise our standards as an institution, it becomes all the more important to recognize students who excel.
