A big congratulations to the Outstanding Academic Achievement Awardees!  Especially to the University Honors Program students!

UHPers Dominate Rice, Gamow, and Provost/OVPR Research Prizes!

30 Apr

Congratulations to the winners of the George Gamow, Luther Rice and Provost/OVPR research prizes! Honors students made up 22% of the winners of these prestigious awards, while the UHP makes up less than 5% of the total student population at GW.

UHPers Adam Bethke and Michelle Kuhn received the Provost/ OVPR Undergraduate Research Fellowship.

UHPers Madison Boggs, Alexandra Kralick, Julia Wagner and Hannah Wendling were selected for the Gamow Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program. The Gamow provides funding to undergraduates who submit a proposal with a faculty member to conduct research, scholarship or creative activity.

UHPers Jeremy Barr, Jeffrey Messina, Josh Rivers and Paul Seltzer won the Luther Rice Collaborative Fellowship, which requires a significant, focused examination of an idea or an area of inquiry. The research should result in work that could merit presentation or publication in a scholarly venue.

Also, congratulations to the five UHP freshman whose writings on the summer reading, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, were chosen for the anthology. Kevin Frey, Shira Herald, Jacob Learned, Michelle Stuhlmacher and Brooke Talbot were among 16 freshman chosen to have their responses published. If you’d like to read their pieces, we have a copy in the townhouse for your perusal!
