Call for Nominations: Due April 9
UPDATE: Please note that the requirements have been revised. We will only require one faculty recommendation, from either the honors adviser or thesis adviser.
The Paterno Fellows Program will present two Best Thesis Awards: one for a thesis in the social sciences and the other for a thesis in any field of the humanities. Each prize carries a $500 award and the students will be recognized at the PFP Graduation Ceremony at noon on Saturday, May 4. A faculty panel will make the selections based on the originality of the project, the rigor of the research, and the clarity of presentation. Students must have met all PFP graduation requirements to be eligible. (If you are not sure of your student’s PFP status, please inquire at PaternoFellows@psu.edu.)
To nominate a thesis, or to self-nominate, we must receive the following by Tuesday, April 9:
- one faculty recommendation (either by Google form or pdf form) from an honors adviser or thesis adviser
- the senior thesis in pdf format to PaternoFellows@psu.edu
Students who self-nominate are responsible for requesting input from the faculty adviser.
Please direct questions to PaternoFellows@psu.edu.
