MUSEUM ANNOUNCES RECIPIENTS OF VAN RIPER, BURT AND CLARK AWARDS

April 5, 2005

The CU Museum announced this year's recipients of the Walker Van Riper, William H. Burt, and Clark awards.

Each year, the CU Museum is proud to support students conducting dynamic research in museum-related fields, including earth and life sciences, history, fine arts, and anthropology. There are three categories of awards. Walker Van Riper awards are given to selected CU students with outstanding scholastic records and research in natural history or humanities; William H. Burt Awards are given to students whose research makes significant contributions to natural history, especially mammalogy; and the Clark Scholarship is awarded to Native American students in museum-related studies.

This year, the CU Museum Student Awards Committee had an exceptional pool of applications.

This year’s recipients of Walker Van Riper awards are: Matthew Bealor, Sarah Beggs, Mitchell Eaton, Shannon Felhburg, Jamie Ford, Rhea Gavounas, Sheila Goff, Lindsay Jones, Susan Klimas, Jessica Lee, Jessica Metcalf, Leticia Sanchez, Ian Sweeney, and Margaret Wright.

This year’s recipients of William H. Burt awards are: Robert Birkenhoff, Benjamin Burger, David Daitch, Ryan Jones, James Louden, Jonathan O'Brien, Michelle Sauther, and Larry Ulibarri.

The sole recipient of this year’s Clark Scholarship is Lori Field.

Congratulations to this year’s recipients of the Walker Van Riper, Burt, and Clark awards! Your research proposals were truly outstanding.
