Two students in the Chancellor’s Honors Program received distinguished recognition for the 2015 Undergraduate Awards. Christopher Reese (Class of 2015, Honors Anthropology) and Caroline Darlington (Class of 2016, Honors Nursing) have been listed as “Highly Commendable” for their innovative research, and they have been invited to receive their award at the 3-day Global Summit in Dublin, Ireland. “Becoming highly commended, means you are recogni[z]ed as being in the top 10% of your field.”
The Undergraduate Awards received 5,117 submissions from students in 255 universities across 39 countries for the 2015 competition.
The Undergraduate Awards is an international, interdisciplinary awards program that accepts submissions from high achieving undergraduate students from around the world. “It aims to celebrate and support the world’s brightest and most innovative undergraduate students by recogni[z]ing their best coursework and projects.” The program accepts submissions from students who are in their senior year of their degree program.
The Office of Honors and Scholars Programs and the Office of Undergraduate Research extends their warm congratulations to these two students.
