T.A. Davis Research Award

From 1973 until 1994, Thomas A. Davis served as Dean of the University of Puget Sound.  During his career, he was at the forefront in helping Puget Sound become a high-quality liberal arts institution.  In particular, he was a founding member of the University of Puget Sound Honors Program and continued during his time at the university to support the Honors Program’s pursuit of excellence.  In recognition of this spirit of excellence, the Honors Program awards, in Dean Davis’ name, two ($3,250) grants each year to support summer research leading to an Honors Program thesis in the Arts, Humanities or Social Sciences (students need not be majoring in these areas).
