H. Curt '56 and Patricia S. '57 Hege Research Award
Made possible by the generosity of Guilford alumni H. Curt '56 and Patricia S. '57 Hege, the establishment of this award coincided with the 25th anniversary of the 1989 addition to the Hege Library.
This award is a celebration of faculty mentorship and librarian engagement in furthering student development as critical thinkers and thoughtful and creative scholars. Two $1,000 awards are given on an annual basis to honor and promote exemplary senior theses.
The Guilford Gazette published an excellent piece about our 2022 winners, Emma English and Brooks Stemple.
