CGS Celebrates Capstone Turn-In and Recognizes Student Leaders
It’s a CGS tradition– the celebratory Capstone turn-in! Sophomore students officially turn in their Capstone projects, the final product of two years of interdisciplinary education, and CGS recognizes students who have excelled in academics and leadership.
Brendan Gilbane Award
This award was established to honor long-time faculty member and dean Brendan F. Gilbane, who served as dean from 1974-2000. Initially nominated by a faculty member, this scholarship is given to a student based on following criteria:
- plans to continue into either CAS or COM (Dean Gilbane received his bachelor’s degree in journalism from COM and his Ph.D. in history from CAS)
- excellence in academic performance, as reflected in the faculty nomination and in the student’s academic record
- a two-page personal statement written by the nominated student, linking the first two years of interdisciplinary general education at CGS with plans for the next two years of study at CAS or COM.
