Undergraduate Award Recipients

Presented to two graduating students, evidence of outstanding personal growth is the primary criterion for selection.  Additional preference is given to students who demonstrate integrity, show persistence to achieve a college education and contribute to self, community and family.

Graduate Award Recipients

Presented to graduate students to recognize outstanding achievement and contributions at the University of Arizona. In years past, the award was presented to two students at the master’s level and two students at the doctoral level, but in 2018, due to the philanthropic commitment of past master’s award recipient Dr. William Broussard, the award has been increased to honor six graduate students. Award recipients have shown academic achievement despite facing challenging social, economic, or educational obstacles.
