What is this award?

Advisors who distinguish themselves in advising honors students are integral to the mission of the University Honors Program, and a special recognition is bestowed each year on a particular individual. For awardees, we are pleased to offer a monetary prize and personalized memento. The award will be made during the Honors Recognition Ceremony held each April.


The University Honors Program will send out a call for nominations by email in late fall/early spring each year. The nomination form will ask for the nominator's information, the nominee's information, and an explanation of why this advisor has proved exceptional in advising honors students.
