Provost’s Scholars Awards

The Provost’s Scholars Awards celebrate the achievements of students who have demonstrated their willingness in their first two years of college to stretch themselves intellectually, to push beyond what they already know they can do, to take significant risk by pursuing the unknown and unpredictable–in short, to demonstrate the spirit of a true scholar at a research university.

Up to twenty (20) awards are given annually, each carrying $1000 of funding for research/creative activity expenses such as travel to conferences and archives or for research-related equipment and supplies. Awards are distributed through the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP). Winners are selected in the Spring Semester, and recognized at the Provost’s Academic Awards Ceremony during Family & Friends Weekend in October.
