The Annual Scholastic Achievement Awards

Each year the Department presents two academic achievement awards. The Hans Morrow Junior Award honors the most outstanding junior. The Senior with the Highest GPA Award honors the graduating senior with the highest cumulative GPA.

The Annual Department of History Essay Contest

Entrants must be declared history undergraduates (teaching major or minor, academic major or minor). Their entries may be from any University of Utah history course but all entries must be typed, double-spaced with proper footnotes and bibliographies. Neither the student's name nor any other identifying information can appear on any page of the essay.

A call for papers will be sent out during spring semester and the winner will be selected shortly after.
