A substantial monetary award will be made to a graduate student who has completed at least one semester of graduate work in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Among other qualifications, reviewers will favorably consider, regardless of an applicant's own race or gender: (1) an applicant's commitment to break down barriers, create a welcoming environment, and include individuals who are racial minorities or women (or otherwise reflect broad diversity) in academic, co-curricular, and/or research endeavors; (2) an applicant's success in overcoming barriers—or helping others to overcome barriers (including low socio-economic background)—to academic achievement; and (3) an applicant's commitment to contribute to the student's university, local or larger community. We will holistically and individually assess applicants under all criteria to select those students who best qualify. Deadline for submission is 23 February.
