UT Co-op Mitchell Undergraduate Awards

Applications are now open for the 2023 University Co-op George H. Mitchell Student Awards for Academic Excellence.

Each spring, with the generous support of the University Co-op, UT recognizes up to five undergraduate students for superior scholarly or creative achievement. Four will receive awards of $5,000 and one student will receive the top award of $7,000.

The application and all supporting materials must be received by Tuesday, March 21.

  • Applicants must be either a junior or senior currently enrolled at UT or a UT graduate who received their undergraduate degree in December 2022.
  • Students must demonstrate superior scholarly or creative achievement through a notable paper or thesis, research project, creative or artistic endeavor, or other product of their academic work.
  • Submitted work should be finished or almost finished (e.g. a complete draft of a thesis or research paper).
