Graduate Student Awards

Awards Given to Graduate Students in 2016

The Homer Rice Award recognizes an HSOC graduate student who, through volunteerism, has fostered a sense of community in the School of History and Sociology, as well as broader communities. Named in honor of Dr. Homer Rice, Georgia Tech’s former athletic director, the award offers a modest monetary stipend as well as recognition on the HSOC award wall in the Old CE Building.

This year's Homer Rice Award Winner is Alice Clifton. Congratulations!
