Applications now available for All-USA Community College Academic Team
Currently-enrolled ICC students with a GPA of 3.5 or higher are eligible to apply for the All-USA Academic Team. Students selected for the national team also receive a scholarship.
What is The All-USA Community College Academic Team?
The All-USA Community College Academic Team is presented by USA TODAY and Phi Theta Kappa and sponsored by Follett Higher Education Group. Twenty students will be selected to the national team, each receiving a $2,500 scholarship and medallion. These students will be featured in the USA TODAY newspaper and presented at Phi Theta Kappa’s Presidents Breakfast held during the Annual Convention of the American Association of Community Colleges Convention (AACC).
Nominees to the All‐USA Community College Academic Team may also be considered for the Coca‐Cola Community College Academic Team, New Century Scholars and All‐State Community College Academic Teams when applicable. Based on the same application, two students from ICC will be named to the All-State Academic Team.
