Minnie Stevens Piper Foundation Award
The Minnie Stevens Piper Foundations honors ten professors during the academic year for their dedication to the teaching profession and for their outstanding academic, scientific and scholarly achievement. Honorees are awarded certificates, a cash honorarium of $5000.00 each, and a gold commemorative pin. Institutions within the state of Texas may nominate only one member of its faculty to compete for this prestigious award. Nominees should be full-time instructors, and the final nominee is chosen by all university faculty through a general vote.
