Student Awards

The Art History Program believes in honoring students who show exemplary progress in their classes. We currently have four departmental awards for which our most promising students are eligible:

The Giorgio Vasari Award for Excellence in Art History

The Dr. Madeline Archer Award for Excellence in ARHY 111

The Carmen Stonge Award for Excellence in ARHY 112

The Jean E. Hunter Award for Writing History

The Giorgio Vasari Award for Excellence in Art History

This award recognizes a student for stellar performance in his/her Art History coursework during an academic year and his/her strong potential for future performance at the graduate or professional level in the discipline. This award is the highest honor the program offers and is given to our "Most Promising" overall student of Art History.

The award consists of a check, which we hope will help the recipient to further his/her love of art in one way or another, as well as a beautifully framed certificate.
