Love Family Foundation Award

The Love Family Foundation Award, made possible by a generous grant from the Gay and Erskine Love Foundation, is one of the highest academic awards Georgia Tech gives to a graduating senior. The award recognizes the undergraduate student with “most outstanding scholastic record of all members of the class” and includes a $10,000 monetary award and recognition at the annual Student Honors program. Each of the six colleges nominates its top graduating student, and the winner is ultimately selected by the academic associate deans in coordination with the Office of Undergraduate Education (OUE). The remaining five finalists receive the Provost’s Academic Excellence Award. Established in 2021, the Provost’s Academic Excellence Award was created to recognize the finalists of the Love Family Foundation Award. Each student is a graduating senior and represents the most outstanding scholastic record from their college. Finalists receive a $2,000 award, generously sponsored by the Love Family Foundation and the Office of the Provost, and recognition at the annual Student Honors program.

I find myself at a loss for words to truly convey how grateful I feel to the institute for selecting me for this really high honor. I still remember my first day as a freshman at Tech—a young boy beyond-eager to learn so many new things and get involved in so much exciting research—an excitement that has stayed with me since. The news of this award comes as a strong boost of encouragement and appreciation to propel with me strengthened promise towards the fulfillment of my aspirations. I express my most heartfelt thanks to everyone who invested their belief in my candidature for this highly prestigious award.
