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.
