SoM Student Awards
Each year the School of Meteorology faculty, adjunct faculty, and staff are asked to nominate students for awards to acknowledge academic performance, leadership, and service. Once a student has been nominated for an award, the student will be contacted for additional information to aid the selection committee in making a decision. Typically, nominations are made by early February and award decisions are made by early March. Awards are presented at the College of Atmospheric and Geographic Sciences Student Awards Ceremony, typically held in April. Each student receives a certificate and monetary award, as well as a place on the School of Meteorology recognition plaque.
