Alpha Chi Alpha - Frances Morehouse Prize

This prize is awarded annually to a graduating senior with a distinguished record in the Social Sciences. Consideration is given not only to scholastic standing but also to scope of interest in the Social Sciences. Awards in recent years have ranged from $300 to $500. Students may nominate themselves or be nominated by a faculty member; in either case, a complete application will consist of a personal statement by the student outlining his or her interest in an area within the Social Sciences, a copy of the student’s transcript, and two letters of recommendation.


Shuster Awards for Outstanding Master's Degree Theses

The nomination packet should consist of a letter of nomination; a one-page summary of the thesis; an evaluation of the thesis by the thesis sponsor, including comments on the merit of the nominated thesis compared to other theses recently completed in their program; and a copy of the thesis. A thesis that has not yet been given formal final approval by its sponsor may be nominated and considered for this award, if a copy of the final draft accompanies the nomination.
