Undergraduate Awards Recognition Luncheon
In Spring 2010, the BMB Department awarded twenty-three scholarships to its undergraduate students for the 2010-2011 academic year. In tribute to the awardees, the department held its annual luncheon November 9, 2010. Award recipients, staff and the Department Undergraduate Affairs Committee attended a fiesta- themed taco luncheon. Associate Professor, Wendy Hanna-Rose thanked everyone for attending and applauded the outstanding academic and leadership achievements of several recipients.
Monies for each award are derived from the proceeds of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology endowments and Eberly College of Science awards established by donors and, in many cases, carry restrictions for potential awardees. Consequently, recipients should think of these as awards rather than as scholarships.
In reflection and appreciation of each generous benefactor, Dr. Hanna-Rose provided background information of their individual awards to the students.
The department congratulates the 2010 - 2011 award winners. A complete list of award winners may be viewed here.
