Hogan Book Award
The award provides the textbook to the introductory science courses to a selected group of first generation college students. As textbooks in STEM disciplines can be among the most expensive, the Drs. Hogan created the award to reduce this financial barrier to persistence in STEM fields for first generation college students.
The inaugural recipients of the award received their textbook and certificate at a lunch on Friday, January 9, 2015. Award recipients were asked to write a letter of support to other first generation college students interested in studying STEM disciplines.
The award recipients and their letters are featured below:
