Awards for HPM Students

Awards and scholarships are given to students in recognition of their merit and excellence in teaching, research, and service. Some awards are offered to outstanding students as part of their financial aid package during recruitment. Others are awarded during the department’s annual Student Awards Ceremony in April. Alumni who were inspired by their experiences in HPM to support current students funded several of these awards. Each award has unique eligibility requirements, including but not limited to degree program, year of study, area of interest, and contributions toward equity and inclusion.

These are the available HPM departmental awards for 2024.
