Outstanding Student Prize

The ACO Outstanding Student Prize is a bi-annual award that will consist of a citation and a cash award. This is a prize that we were able to establish thanks to a generous donation from the late Professor Emeritus Richard Duke. The winner(s) will be selected by a prize committee. During the award period, nominations are sent to any member of the committee or to Administrative Assistant for ACO. The prize has few restrictions. As the name suggests, the prize will recognize an outstanding accomplishment by a PhD student in the areas covered by ACO. Any student who graduated in 2018 or later or has not yet graduated is eligible. Multiple prizes may be awarded.
