Each spring CCA sponsors the All-College Honors Awards competition. Twenty-three scholarship awards are given to students in the BA, BFA, and BArch undergraduate programs and the MA, MBA, MFA, and MArch graduate programs. The awards are granted during the fall semester.
Merit prizes are awarded based on a juried portfolio review. Enrolled undergraduate students are eligible to submit portfolios for this one-year prize.
- Entrant must be a full-time student enrolled in a degree-seeking program during the spring semester and must plan to enroll as a full-time student in the fall. Students expecting to graduate in spring or summer semesters are ineligible.
- Entrant must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher and in good academic standing.
- Recipients of the Hamaguchi Award are ineligible to compete in the visual works category.
Award recipients must be enrolled full-time at the college in the fall semester; otherwise the award is relinquished and granted to the next honorable mention recipient in the category.
