The selection of William Frangos Memorial award recipients shall be made in a manner determined at the discretion of the department head for Geology & Environmental Science, with the understanding that selection decisions must be made and announced each year by mid-April. Further, the Donor specifically directs that - for each recipient -the purpose shall be designated at the time of the selection decision; that is, the Donor intends for the selection process to include sufficient latitude so that funds may be presented to recipients as scholarships, research stipends, or monetary awards, as may be most appropriate in each case. In the case of scholarship awards, it is anticipated that -beyond the above criteria - the appointment of a student to receive funds as a scholarship award shall follow the University's guidelines for the awarding of scholarships.
