Merrill P. Freeman Award

In his will Dr. Merrill Freeman, who died in 1919, provided for two medals to be awarded annually to students selected by the administration of The University of Arizona. Born in 1844 in Ohio, Dr. Freeman moved west, was a Wells Fargo agent and worked in mining and banking. He served The University of Arizona as a regent and as a chancellor and received an honorary doctorate in law from the University.

Qualifications include outstanding qualities of manhood or womanhood and moral force of character. Additional factors which may be considered are: popularity, receipt of athletic awards, membership in organizations, service on committees and as officers.

Eligible undergraduate students are those who have demonstrated above-average scholastic ability, citizenship, leadership, and promise for the future. Students are not considered based only on cumulative grade point average. These awards are for well-rounded individuals whose contributions through co-curricular and community activities and leadership are evident. You need not specify the award for which a student is being nominated; the committee considers all eligible nominees for each award.
