This month 26 students from a wide spectrum of departments were honored as leaders among undergraduate researchers at the Capstone through the Randall Outstanding Undergraduate Research Award Program.
The honorees have all conducted significant scholarly research and were nominated by faculty and staff research directors. A distinguished panel of UA research faculty and past recipients of the Burnum Distinguished Faculty Award selected the winners, who were honored at a luncheon.
Abigail Foes received the H. Pettus Randall Jr. Endowed Scholarship for her senior year. The scholarship is awarded to the highest vote recipient who is a junior in the Randall Research Scholars Program.
The Randall Outstanding Undergraduate Research Award Program was created in 1997 by the Randall Publishing Co. and the H. Pettus Randall III family in memory of Henry Pettus Randall Jr., a distinguished UA alumnus and creator of Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges.
