Scholar of the Year
The Scholar of the Year Award is given each year to recognize and emphasize excellence in scholarship. Other service and student activity involvement may become a consideration in the selection process, but the main emphasis will be on scholarly achievement
The dean is to appoint a committee with students, faculty, and administrative representation to select an outstanding student scholar from each college. The Robins Award Committee will then appoint a committee to select the "Scholar of the Year" from the eight college nominees. The person is recognized at the annual Robins Award.
