Description

The Scholar of the College award is presented annually by the College of Liberal Arts to recognize and celebrate outstanding achievement by faculty in the college. Scholars of the College are chosen on the basis of past accomplishments and contributions in the areas of scholarly research or other creative work, teaching, and service, and the promise of further achievement. Scholars of the College receive a stipend totaling $10,000 per year for three years to support their research or creative work.
