Winter 2023 Maize & Blue Winners
UM-Flint has awarded its highest undergraduate academic honor to 15 students for the Winter 2023 semester.

The University of Michigan-Flint is proud to announce the Winter 2023 Maize and Blue Distinguished Scholar Award recipients.

The Maize & Blue Award is the highest academic recognition given to undergraduate students during the commencement season. The award is presented to no more than 26 students per year who excel academically and exemplify intellectual maturity and depth, character, talent, and service to the university and the community. The recipients are selected by a faculty committee, with both faculty and staff writing letters of recommendation for students who apply for the award.

Commencement speakers are chosen from among the group of Maize & Blue Award honorees. For the April 2023 commencement ceremonies, Alyssa Golden, Yuliia Lane, Elizabeth Rice and Noor Shihabi have been selected to speak.
