Each year, the dean recognizes at least four students with financial support from alumni who contributed to the award. Students must demonstrate both scholarly achievement and off-campus community service participation. This award is open to Social Ecology undergraduate and graduate students from any department. Students may nominate themselves, other students, or be nominated by a Social Ecology faculty member.
