Jostens Renaissance® is committed to celebrating and rewarding excellence through a variety of award and scholarship programs, including:
Jostens Renaissance® Student Scholarship
The $2,500 per year ($10,000 total) Jostens Renaissance® Student Scholarship will be awarded to a senior in a school actively using Jostens Renaissance to impact climate and culture. Evaluation is based on solid academic performance and potential including faculty recommendations as well as a written essay describing the student’s participation in Renaissance. Additionally, four secondary awardees will receive a $1000 one-time award.
Unfortunately no new Renaissance Student Scholarships will be awarded in 2021. Please check back in January of 2022 for updates.
Jostens Renaissance® Hall of Fame
Induction into the Jostens Renaissance Hall of Fame is the highest honor that an educator can receive from Jostens Renaissance. The Hall of Fame recognizes educators whose efforts have not only made a significant impact within their schools, but also in the larger regional and/or national Renaissance community. Jostens Renaissance Hall of Fame inductees will be notified in April of each year. Winners will be recognized at the Awards Banquet at the Jostens Renaissance National Conference in July, and will also receive conference registration, a hotel room during the conference, airfare, and an award ring and trophy.

Jostens Renaissance® National Student/Staffulty Member of the Month
Jostens Renaissance Education recognizes the best examples of students and staffulty members who are making an amazing impact on the culture of their schools. Each month we will name a National Renaissance Student of the Month and a National Renaissance Staffulty Member of the Month!
Winning students or staffulty members will demonstrate how they put the five R’s into action throughout the school year (see our Learn More page for more info on the four R’s). These are the people who are showing their commitment to making a difference in their school and community, and we want to tell their stories.
Click here to nominate the deserving students and/or adults in your building. Each selected staffulty and student of the month will be contacted, interviewed and celebrated in the Jostens Renaissance Monthly email.
