Call for Nominations:
Due April 27 Extended to May 1
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. 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
Monday, April 27 Friday, May 1:
- one faculty recommendation by Google form from an honors adviser or thesis adviser; and
- 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.
