Student Awards

Student Recognition

The LTRR faculty recognizes the accomplishments and potential of its students with these scholarships. They are intended to encourage students to continue their tree-ring studies and to apply that learning in their future career.

Andrew Ellicott Douglass Memorial Scholarship

The Douglass Scholarship indicates outstanding academic achievement and high expectations of future contributions to dendrochronology. The late Mrs. Ida Whittington Douglass and Elizabeth Hale Strickler established this fund to benefit upper division or graduate students in the fields of dendrochronology and astronomy. Recipients are named by the Departments concerned and approved by the Dean of the College of Science subject to approval of the Student Financial Aid Office.

Alsie French & Edmund Schulman Memorial Scholarship

The Schulman Scholarship indicates outstanding students in our dendrochronology courses who have demonstrated high potential for making future contributions to the field of dendrochronology. This award is gift from Florence E. Phillips and Gladys Phillips of Tucson, Arizona, in memory of Alsie French Schulman, formerly Assistant Professor of English, and Edmund Schulman, formerly Professor of Dendrochronology at the University of Arizona. Upper division students in the Departments of English and Dendrochronology are eligible. Candidates are recommended by the Department concerned, subject to the approval of the appropriate Deans and the Office of Student Financial Aid. The award value is $400 annually in each field.

Thomas P. Harlan Bristlecone Pine Award

This award is named in honor of one of the most skilled practical dendrochronologists, whose career at the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research ran from 1957 to 2013, and included important fieldwork among the bristlecone pines of the White Mountains of California. It is a scholarship fund to support outstanding contributions by a graduate or undergraduate student working in the LTRR on research related to bristlecone pine. Additional contributions to honor the memory of Tom Harlan (and augment the initial endowment by an anonymous donor) are welcome: checks should be made out to “UA Foundation—Harlan Award” and mailed to: Thomas P. Harlan Bristlecone Pine Award, Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research, University of Arizona, P.O. Box 210045, Tucson, Ariz. 85721.

Galileo Circle Scholars

Graduate students judged to be the finest in College of Science receive an annual award, individually sponsored by one of several donors; this a program organized by the Galileo Circle, a society that promotes the future of science by connecting scholars and donors.
