Students in the School of Humanities and Sciences excel academically, pursuing challenging upper-level courses in their major and minor areas of study while undertaking research, honors projects, and leadership roles in the community. They are truly committed to learning and their desire to push the knowledge frontier in a wide variety of disciplines.
We recognize students’ dedication by awarding prizes based on academic excellence and by offering competitive grants to support students who undertake special academic projects. Some of these opportunities are offered at the School level, but most are offered by the departments within the School. Awards and grants attest to the academic accomplishments of our students.
