$1,000 Cash Award - An outstanding Scholarship opportunity for students interested in research in the field of Criminology, Law and Society
Award Amount: $1,000
Professor Gilbert Geis, who taught in the Department of Criminology, Law and Society between 1970 and 1987, was one of the world's leading criminologists. His contributions to general criminological theory and to the sub-field of white-collar crime are well documented. This award is available due to the generosity of a former student of Gilbert Geis, a School of Social Ecology alumnus who was inspired by Professor Geis' research and teaching. He funded this award to encourage and support undergraduate students who are involved in research related to criminology, law and society. Students who are interested in attending graduate school are particularly urged to apply.
