University Co-op / George H. Mitchell Undergraduate Student Awards for Academic Excellence
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 will receive awards of $5,000 each, and one student will be awarded the grand prize of $20,000. 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. Recipients will be chosen by the Co-op Awards Selection Committee composed of University faculty.
Faculty members nominate students who have demonstrated superior scholarly or creative achievement through a notable paper or thesis, research project, creative or artistic endeavor, or other product of the student’s academic work. To qualify for an award, nominees must be either a junior or senior currently enrolled at UT Austin or have received their undergraduate degree in December of the academic year in which the award is being given. 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 Award recipients are eligible only if the submitted work is a completely different project. Only one nomination letter will be accepted for each student. Faculty may nominate up to two students.
