The Oliver Cromwell Cox and Ernest Everett Just Prize

The Oliver Cromwell Cox and Ernest Everett Just Prize

The Office of the Deputy Provost for Research and Minority Issues awards annually a $500 prize to the undergraduate senior thesis recommended for departmental honors. The prized thesis must best exemplify the aspirations and achievements of Oliver Cromwell Cox and Ernest Everett Just, graduates of the Division of Social Sciences and the Division of Biological Sciences, respectively. In recognition of the distinct areas of study of the named honorees, college honors level theses from all disciplines are eligible for nomination.

In keeping with the broad diversity goals of the Office of the Deputy Provost for Research and Minority Issues, senior theses recommended for departmental honors may be nominated for the award by a faculty member or preceptor. Successful nominees will typically have a thesis that focuses on issues of diversity and inequality and/or a personal background that includes overcoming disadvantage and adversity.

The deadline for nominations is WEDNESDAY, May 4, 2016.

 

The Cox-Just Just Prize is made possible through a generous donation from Edouard Maciejewski.
