Division of Biology Undergraduate Awards

Each year the Division of Biology recognizes superior achievements of its undergraduate majors with the Most Promising Student and H. H. Haymaker (in honor of Dr. Herbert Henley Haymaker) awards. Usually eight to ten sophomores or juniors are selected for the Most Promising Student Awards, and one graduating senior is chosen for the Haymaker Award. Students are nominated by the faculty, and the winners are chosen by a faculty committee whose selection criteria includes academic record, activities and achievements outside the classroom, and performance in an interview with the committee. Each award includes an award plaque and an honorarium. Student winners are honored at a Saturday luncheon and receive cash awards.
