Students from across the university were acknowledged for their accomplishments by being granted a 2014 All-University Award for Excellence.

The All-University Awards for Excellence were created to acknowledge the accomplishments of exceptional students. The undergraduate awards are intended to enhance the academic credentials of deserving students who may eventually seek admission to graduate education. These may be given to students in any year of their undergraduate program, including graduating seniors.


The Lou Ann Simon and Chuck Webb Award can only be awarded to a Master’s or Ph.D. student. This award is intended to enhance the academic credentials of a deserving graduate student who may eventually seek to continue his or her graduate education or pursue post-doc opportunities.


For 2014, the monetary value of each award is $700 except for the UURAF Prizes that are capped at $500 per award and the Lou Anna Simon and Chuck Webb Award which is $750.
