University Co-op / George H. Mitchell Undergraduate Student Awards for Academic Excellence
Website for submissions will be open between March 18 - 25, 2015
In the Spring Semester of 2015, the University of Texas at Austin with the generous support of the University Co-op will recognize up to seven UT undergraduates for superior scholarly or creative achievement. Three students will receive awards of $2,000 each, three students awards of $3,000 each, and one student the top award of $10,000. The Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost provides a concurrent award of half the value of each student’s award to the academic department in which the scholarly work was supervised. The Co-op Awards Selection Committee of university faculty will choose recipients.
A faculty member must submit student nominations for this award. Nominees must be either a junior or senior currently enrolled at UT Austin or have received their undergraduate degree in December of 2014. Submitted work should be finished or close to finished (e.g., a complete draft of a thesis or research paper). Previous University Co-op / George H. Mitchell Awards recipients are eligible only if the submitted work is a completely different project.
Students graduating in December 2014 may contact Kati Pelletier for early submissions.
