First awarded in 1996, the Provost’s Prize annually honors a Ball State senior of high academic achievement, as selected by a committee of students and faculty. The committee includes one faculty member from each of the university’s academic colleges.
The prize includes a $1,000 award. Recipients’ names are inscribed on a plaque permanently displayed in the Honors College.
You must have at least a 3.5 grade point average.
In addition to academic excellence, the selection committee evaluates educational achievement, such as fellowships, internships, overseas study, research/creative projects, work experience, awards, performance activities, and volunteer service.
The committee focuses on the way in which academic excellence combines with other opportunities—even nonacademic ones—to form a unique educational experience.
