Academic All-Star Program

Focused on the Student in Student-Athlete

The USA Cycling Collegiate Academic All-Stars Program honors collegiate athletes that excel both on and off the bike. This group is named twice a year - in February for Track, Mountain Bike and Cyclo-cross athletes and in September for BMX and Road cyclists.

In order to achieve Academic All-Star status, the athlete must have attended a USA Collegiate Cycling National Championship in the specified term for that honor and have maintained a 3.5 or higher GPA for the semester or term during which the nationals event falls (or the preceding term in the case of Cyclo-cross). The names of these athletes will be published by USA Cycling in February and September of each year.


  • Collegiate cyclist has competed in at least one Collegiate National Championship in the term being honored.
  • Collegiate cyclist or coach submits an official transcript or form to USA Cycling with the school seal from the registrar’s office that verifies the semester/term GPA of the student (can be submitted electronically or through mail).

In addition to this we urge interested students to apply for the Stenner and Kuck Scholarships in the spring. These scholarships are a tremendous opportunity for the student leaders involved with cycling teams, especially for those unable to make it to a national championship. As an opportunity to showcase student leaders it emphasizes what they do to drive the success of their team though community outreach and event organization such as youth involvement drives, bike rodeos, trail builds and other activities. Awarded annually, these scholarships are given to two female and two male collegiate riders based on competitive, academic, cycling advocacy, and community involvement accomplishments.
