Percy Julian Award

The Percy Julian Award is named in honor of Dr. Percy Julian, an organic chemist with numerous scientific accomplishments and important figure in the social equality movement. A gift of $500 is awarded each year to an outstanding undergraduate student leader who is active in the promotion of diversity, social equality, or racial/ethnic and cultural understanding.

Percy Julian Award nominations take place in February and the winner is announced during the Percy Julian Graduation Reception, which takes place in April.
