Each year the department, college, and university award scholarships to deserving students. Scholarship funding comes almost entirely from the generous gifts of our alumni and friends and are intended to recognize the hard work and academic success of our students, as a well as assist them with the expense of their education. This year 25 economics undergraduates were recognized with 33 awards. We congratulate our students on their achievements and thank our alumni and friends for their support.
