Nominations of students by HTS faculty are due in February each year, and the prize is given at the annual Georgia Tech Student Honors Luncheon and Award Ceremony. The Bellon Prize includes a cash award of $1,000.
The Slotkin Award, established by HTS alumnus Art Slotkin, recognizes the HTS student who most exemplifies excellence in historical and social scholarship. Nominations of students by HTS faculty are due in February each year, and the prize is given at the annual Georgia Tech Student Honors Luncheon and Award Ceremony. The Slotkin Award includes a cash prize of $500.
The Chair’s Award recognizes the overall academic excellence of an HTS first year student at Georgia Tech, based upon the highest GPA. The award is given after the completion of the student’s first year at Georgia Tech (i.e., the award is given in the student's second year). The award is given at the annual Georgia Tech Student Honors Luncheon and Award Ceremony and includes a cash prize of $200.
HTS, in conjunction with the Office of Minority Educational Development, also sponsors the Dorothy Cowser Yancy Incentive Award each year. The Incentive Award is given to the African American first year student with the most outstanding academic record based on GPA, curriculum difficulty, and participation in activities related to the student's program of study. The award is sponsored by former History, Technology, and Society professor Dr. Dorothy Yancy, who went on to become the president of Johnson C. Smith University, and is given by the School of HTS in her name.
